Garcia Tribute By The Bay

Sporting custom-made Giants jerseys, Grateful Dead veterans Bob Weir and Phil Lesh were joined by the Bay Area basher\'s third base coach Tim Flannery on an acapella rendition of the Star Spangled Banner (video) before the Giants and Pirates took the field Monday night (8/9).  The 2011  edition of the relatively recent tradition of celebrating the life and legacy of musical MVP Jerry Garcia at the NL park at around the time of both his birth (8/1) and death (8/9) also included Drummer Mickey Hart and NBA designated Dead Head Bill Walton leading the crowd in Take Me Out To The Ballgame during the 7th inning stretch.  Aubrey Huff gave Giants faithful more reasons to be grateful - picking-up an RBI double and belting a curveball nearly into the Bay some of Garcia\'s ashes were scattered in 16 years ago to cap a six run shut-out of the Bucs for the sold-out crowd.
