May 27th is the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. To commemorate the monument's birthday, the San Francisco Giants will wear special patches against the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.
Now, there's plenty of fascinating stuff surrounding the Golden Gate anniversary. If you haven't already checked it out over at NBC Bay Area's specially-dedicated GG section, you absolutely should do so now.
But this is a rare chance to actually end up owning some of the action too, as the Giants, who are selling game-worn and game-used memorabilia all season long, will be selling some of the patch-covered game-worn jerseys.
"The team will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge by wearing a patch on their uniforms on Friday, May 18th when the Giants celebrate International Orange Friday," the Giants said in a press release. "These game used jerseys will be available for sale after the game in the store with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Kids to the Bridge program."
The patch itself is pretty cool too:
And yes, it's fitting that the Giants are the ones repping the Bay Bridge and doing it so while playing the A's.
