The River Cats’ new partnership with the San Francisco Giants will be on display Wednesday when the Giants’ World Series trophies from 2010, 2012 and 2014 come to Raley Field in West Sacramento.

From 4 to 6 p.m., the trophies will be set up in center field for viewing and picture taking. The Sacramento Bee also will display its World Series photography throughout the ballpark during the event. Admission is free, though the team suggests a donation to the Junior Giants program.

“We are so proud to be the affiliate of the World Champion San Francisco Giants,” River Cats general manager Chip Maxson said in a news release. “Being able to host all three trophies at Raley Field is a true honor for our fans and all the baseball lovers in the greater Sacramento area.”

The Triple-A River Cats announced in September that they switched their affiliation from the Oakland A’s to the Giants. A month later, San Francisco snagged another World Series title.

River Cats management advises that fans should arrive early Wednesday to make sure they can get through the line in time to get a picture with the trophies.
