It's Fall And The Giants Are Playing Baseball! World Series 2014.

Everyone here is very excited that the Giants have returned to the World Series.  Following our 2010 and 2012 tradition of Giants championship blogging, this year we again introduce the newest book and video titles for the San Francisco baseball fan.

There have been a half dozen titles that retell and document the 2012 World Series Championship team that are listed below.  There are also a few other recent titles for the die-hard Giants fans. Battle of the Bay returns to 1989 Bay Bridge World Series. The Giants Baseball Experience is a year-by-year history of the New York and San Francisco Giants.  Rivalry Heard 'Round The World tells stories of the enduring rivalry between the Giants and the Dodgers on both coasts. Old-time San Franciscans will enjoy The 1957 San Francisco Seals written about the City's season year of minor league baseball.

The Library also has DVDs to borrow of the complete 2012 World Series as well as a DVD of Matt Cain's perfect game of June 13, 2012.

Happy reading and and happy watching.  Go Giants!
