The San Francisco Giants' game on Tuesday that could clinch the World Series against the Kansas City Royals will be broadcast on a Jumbotron screen in Civic Center Plaza, city officials announced Monday.
Game 6 of the World Series is scheduled for 5:07 p.m. Tuesday in Kansas City, Missouri. The Giants lead the seven-game series 3-2, so a win would clinch their third title in five years.
"Our Giants have shown their magic once again as this improbable group of players refuses to quit," Mayor Ed Lee said in a statement. "The game that could clinch may be in Kansas City, but we're creating an October Together opportunity in front of City Hall for families to gather and cheer on the Giants."
The mayor's office is working with the city's recreation and park and police departments to enforce a zero tolerance policy for alcohol or drugs at the plaza.
Those attending the broadcast at Civic Center Plaza are encouraged to get there early and to take public transportation via Municipal Railway or BART.
