Tens of thousands of baseball fans flocked to downtown San Francisco to toast the Giants’ World Series championship. They saw their hometown heroes take a victory lap in a ticker-tape parade reminiscent of the one held when the team moved west from New York 52 years ago.

Fans crowded the sidewalks and flooded Civic Center to salute a team of self-described misfits and castoffs. Many of themskipped work and pulled their children out of school so they could catch what they said was a once-in-a-lifetime celebration.

The Giants ended a 56-year title drought Monday night with a Game 5 victory over the Rangers in Texas. (AP)
