Enjoy this rare SF Giants clip from the San Francisco Bay Area TV Archive! Originally produced by KRON-TV news on April 14, 1958, it features a downtown tickertape parade welcoming the Giants to San Francisco for their first season after moving west from New York. It also includes scenes from their opening game at Seals Stadium, against the LA Dodgers. The clip was excerpted from a longer compilation of news highlights from 1958, which can be viewed in its entirety below, along with a number of other clips from the Archive related to Bay Area sports.
