SAN FRANCISCO -- Quite a buzz here in the China Basin neighborhood as we get set for Game One of the World Series at AT&T Park (It starts at 4:57, or 7:57 to you folks back home). The pregame media sessions begin shortly and I'll provide any news that comes out of those.
In the interim, here's some information on the entertainment side that you'll see on the Fox telecasts:
Tonight: The Giants will trot out several of their legends and Hall of Famer Willie Mays will throw the ceremonial first pitch. He will be joined by fellow Hall members Orlando Cepeda, Monte Irvin, Juan Marichal, Willie McCovey and Gaylord Perry. John Legend will sing the National Anthem and Tony Bennett, who left his heart here, will sing God Bless America.
Game 2: The first pitch will be thrown by the two daughters of late 1951 New York Giants hero Bobby Thomson. Lady Antebellum is on the anthem.
Game 3: Saturday night in Arlington: Kelly Clarkson is on board for the anthem. Something tells me no one but Nolan Ryan can throw the first pitch for the first-ever Series game in Arlington.
