Trophy travelling to Pacific Northwest

The World Series trophy is coming to the Northwest — and we’re not talking about Medford, Ore.

The Salem-Keizer Volcanoes have made arrangements with the World Champion San Francisco Giants to bring the 2010 World Series trophy to Keizer this summer.

The date is July 9.

The Volcanoes will host an private reception for Volcanoes season-ticket holders, ticket-package holders and the media.

The team released very little additional information about the visit of the trophy. However, the Volcanoes, the Class A short-season affiliate of the Giants, have a home game at 7:05 p.m. against the Tri-City Dust Devils on Saturday, July 9. No word if the trophy will be on display during the game or not.

Stay tuned for more info.

That is an awesome event.
I think every team that wins the big gold trophy should let their minor league affiliates have a day with it for their faithful fans. Only seems right as the minor league system as a whole produced, matured and force fed these guys baseball for so long.
Even if members of Giants 25-man playoff roster did not get their start here, so many other did get their humble beginnigs and advancements through the ladder. From short-season /Rookie to developmental all the way to Triple-A, the fans that support the system should get their day to celebrate too.
Kudos to everyone involved in this awesome event from the first thought to the last…
