Indy Racing Revolution:
Last night, the San Francisco Giants claimed their second World Series title in the last three seasons with a 4-3 win over the Detroit Tigers that completed a four-game sweep. The Giants' triumph also allowed The Raceway in Sonoma to claim victory in their World Series wager with the Detroit Grand Prix. Per the rules of the bet, Detroit GP chairman Bud Denker must send Sonoma president Steve Page a variety of pizza pies from Detroit-based Little Caesars and 12 turkeys. Page will deliver the gobblers to San Francisco's Glide Memorial Church for use in its Thanksgiving Day celebration, which will see the church serving 5,000 meals to the city's less fortunate.In addition, the Detroit GP staff must wear Giants ball caps during the Friday on-track activities of their event on May 31, 2013.The Detroit GP had this to say in a series of posts on its Twitter page, @detroitgp:"Want to say thank to @tigers for a great 2012. Disappointing result in the World Series but the team will be back at it again next year! ...and we will be working to pay up on our World Series bet with @RaceSonoma. Turkeys and Pizza are on the menu for Thanksgiving in SF."If the event that the Tigers won the Fall Classic, Page had promised an assortment of Ghirardelli chocolate (made in San Francisco) and his own group of 12 turkeys for the Detroit-based Gleaners Community Food Bank.

Giants catcher Buster Posey had a two run home run down the left field line at Comerica Park during Game 4 of World Series. This lucky fan was right in the line of the hit and unfortunately for his face, misjudged the path of the ball. I’m sure next time this guy will remember to bring his glove.
The MVP - Most Valuable Panda - sat in the interview room and smiled.

On a ragged baseball diamond, its grass tall and infield dirt pockmarked, nearly 200 boys practice for hours every day. Many of them are inspired by the example of Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera, who learned the game on this very field.
