Fans filed in early and steadily to watch their World Series champions Friday at AT&T Park, where the Giants are beginning the year’s first home stand against the St. Louis Cardinals.
By noon, more than an hour before game time, the park was nearly half full. The festivities Friday will include the raising of San Francisco’s first championship flag, rumored to be placed atop the outfield stadium light scaffolding by closer Brian Wilson himself.
Emerging superstar Brandon Belt came out into the dugout to sign autographs for waiting children and adults alike.
Weather at game time is expected to be cool, but sunny.
