For 24 years, photographer Andy Kuno has been on the field with the San Francisco Giants. He grew up going to games at Candlestick Park with his dad, a photo lab owner who helped out taking pictures of the ballclub. In the 1990s, Andy got the job, and he's been there, through thick and thin, ever since.
In Part 1, Andy talks about memories of the Giants in the 1989 and 2002 World Series.
Something happened in 2010 that had never taken place in San Francisco before—the Giants won a World Series. The team had been here for 52 years at that point. They had played in three different stadiums. Entire generations of families had been fans. But that season, it all came together and eventually culminated in a parade down Market Street in November.
In Part 2, Andy starts us off the year before, when some household names were getting their starts with the team's single-A affiliate in San Jose.
It was one thing for the San Francisco Giants to end the franchise's 56-year drought, winning the World Series in 2010. They went on to repeat as champions in 2012 and 2014.
In Part 3, Andy shares stories from the second and third World Series victories for the San Francisco Giants.
