Champions Tour: Fans flock for shot with Giants trophies

Frank Espinosa was the first person to arrive at the Merced County Fairgrounds on Monday morning. The 55-year-old ceramic tile contractor wasn't going to take any chances of missing his opportunity to see the San Francisco Giants World Series trophies, arriving at the parking lot at 8:30 a.m. Espinosa had no problem waiting nine hours. "I've been a lifelong Giants fan," Espinosa said. "I remember watching Willie Mays and Willie McCovey. My kids got to see the trophy in Monterey two years ago. When I saw that it was coming to Merced, I knew I had to go."
