Congrats to Buster Posey, the 2010 National League Rookie of the Year!
When I heard the news, I realized I was overdue in posting these World Series victory parade photos, featuring Buster and several of his Giants teammates (along with some special guests). This is by no means a comprehensive collection of photos from that amazing day. We were standing at Market and 5th, and the crowd had to be 10 deep at least on both sides. Rumor has it there were 1.5 million spectators lining the parade route — to put that in perspective, the population of the city of SF is 775,000. It was an just an amazing day, and a loud one, the culmination of an epic season, capped by an inspired late-season run and a pitching clinic of a World Series.
Pictured here are newly crowned rookie of the year Posey along with (in no particular order) SF Giants teammates Juan Uribe, Madison Baumgarner, Nate Scherholtz, Sergio Romo, Mike Fontenot, Aubrey Huff (with rally thong and Bud Light in hand), and Pat Burrell. Also included are Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper (aka Kruk and Kuip, the Giants’ dynamic broadcasting duo), Steve Perry, and Mayor Gavin Newsome, some local newscasters and a few rooftop Giants fans.
