SPORTS ILLUSTRATED REGIONAL COVER: THE GIANTS WIN THE SERIES! THE GIANTS WIN THE SERIES!Posted: October 29, 2012
On the heels of its World Series sweep, the San Francisco Giants grace a regional cover of Sports Illustrated – distributed in the West and Northeast. The headline “The Giants Win the Series! The Giants Win the Series!” is a variation of Russ Hodges’ call of Bobby Thomson’s shot heard round the world in 1951. Tom Verducci’s story captures the Giants’ two trips to the brink and three unreal weeks in October for the Giants. The issue will be on stands Wednesday.
