Brooklynn and her parents were announced Tuesday, hours before the Giants took on the San Diego Padres at home. As a result, the couple will receive a $2,010 gift certificate a commemorative brick at AT&T Park with her name, a birth certificate signed by the Giants and the title of “Comcast SportsNet 2010 Giants World Championship Baby.”
Her parents – Jennifer and Robert – welcomed her in to the world at 8:01 p.m. Aug. 1, seven minutes after the team won.
