Game six of the World Series will be broadcasted at Civic Center on Tuesday, according to Mayor Ed Lee’s office.
The game will be shown on a “jumbotron screen” starting at 5:07pm as the Giants attempt to win their third World Series in five years in Kansas City.
Many hoped that the last three games in San Francisco would be shown at Civic Center, but the public broadcast of Giants home games in San Francisco was prohibited by MLB officials, according to the Mayor’s office. That did little to quell the excitement of Giants fans as the team won two out of three games since Friday to lead the series 3-2.
“Our Giants have shown their magic once again as this improbable group of players refuses to quit,” Mayor Lee said in an announcement today. “The Royals are no match for the arms of Bumgarner, Hudson, and Peavy or the timely hitting of Pence, Crawford, Posey Panik, the Panda, and NLCS hero Travis Ishikawa. San Francisco is entirely awash in Giants Orange to cheer on our hometown team.”
The public broadcast is an alcohol-free event with a zero tolerance policy, according to the announcement.
