The San Francisco Giants, Major League Baseball world champions from 2010, were the latest team to visit President Barack Obama and the White House.

The Giants’ World Series trophy and a championship ring were displayed in the East Room of the White House where the president honored the team.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy gave the president a number 44 Giants jersey, which happens to be the retired number of slugger Willie McCovey, but signifies Obama being the nation’s 44th president.

Matt Cain, one of the team’s ace pitchers, awarded the president with a bat emblazoned with the president’s name and signed by the entire team.

It took 56 years for the San Francisco Giants to win a World Series but they did it!

Tim Lincecum, Edgar Renteria and the boys from Frisco won the 2010 World Series, by beating the Texas Rangers 3-1 in a tight, tense Game 5  to win the series by a surprising 4 games to 1 margin.

The Giants had not won a World Series title since their days as the New York Giants back in 1954. The Giants moved to San Francisco prior to the 1958 season.

It’s hard to believe a franchise that has had Willie Mays, Bobby Bonds, Willie McCovey, Barry Bonds, Jim Ray Hart, Juan Marichal, Gaylord Perry and Will Clark could not win a World Series title.

Lincecum outpitched Cliff Lee in a matchup that was scoreless until World Series MVP Edgar Renteria earned a the award by hitting a three-run homer with two outs in the seventh inning.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy calls his team a ragtag bunch because they have other team’s castoffs like Pat Burrell, Edgar Renteria, Cody Ross and Aubrey Huff.

Their pitching staff shut down the explosive Texas Rangers offense by hurling 3 shutouts out of five games.

Baseball fans might recall, that San Francisco almost didn’t make the playoffs. They trailed the San Diego Padres by 7 1/2 games in the NL West on July 4 and won it on the next to last day of the season with a record of 92-70.

The Giants were one of several teams who weren’t suppose to make the playoffs joining, Cincinnati, Texas, Minnesota and Atlanta.

The San Francisco Giants did what nobody thought they would, beat Atlanta and Philadelphia to become National League champions.

The two teams nobody picked to get to the World Series will be participating. The Texas Rangers and the Giants will square off on Wednesday in San Francisco. The series will match the Giants, who are deep in pitching against the Rangers who have speed and power.

Juan Uribe hit a tiebreaking home run off Ryan Madsen in the eighth inning and San Francisco held off the Philadelphia 3-2 Saturday night in Game 6 of the National League championship series. The Giants win 4 games to 2.

Phillies slugger Ryan Howard was called out on strikes with runners at first and second to end the game. Giants closer Brian Wilson had a five-out save.

NLCS MVP Cody Ross (MLB)

San Francisco overcame a 2-0 first inning deficit, tied it in the third and went ahead when Uribe hit an opposite-field drive that barely cleared the fence in right-field.

Benches cleared in the third inning after San Francisco starter Jonathan Sanchez hit Chase Utley with a pitch and then yelled at him for tossing the ball back towards the mound on his way to first base. There were no punches or ejections, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy pulled the iritated Sanchez from the game.

Cody Ross has been a valuable pickup for the San Francisco Giants.

The Giants picked him up from the Florida Marlins in an August waiver deal as a backup outfielder, Ross has had some postseason experience as he has hit three homers and knocked home an RBI single in game 3 to break a scoreless tie.

Matt Cain outpitched Cole Hamels as the Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday afternoon in San Francisco to take a 2-1 lead in the NL championship series.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy moved Ross up from the number 8 spot in the batting order to number 5.

The Giants have shown that they are the perfect matchup with the defending National League champions with power, pitching and relief pitching.

Two more wins and the Giants are in the World Series.

San Francisco haven’t won the World Series since moving to the Bay Area before the 1958 baseball season. The last time the club won the championship was in 1954 as the New York Giants, when Dusty Rhodes was the hero with two homers in 6 at bats.

Winning pitcher Matt Cain allowed two hits over seven innings, struck out five and walked three in a 119-pitch effort for the Giants.
