Are you a die-hard Giants fan?

If so, you're going to want to mark your calendar, and warn your boss you'll be taking an extra-long lunch break - the San Francisco Giants' 2010 and 2012 World Series Trophies, currently on tour, are making a stop in Redwood City very soon.

As a city which features a Junior Giants youth baseball program, Redwood City was honored with a spot on this year's tour, which is sponsored by Bank of America. Redwood City is one of the only cities on the Peninsula that will get a stop on the trophy tour, along with East Palo Alto and Daly City.

The two trophies will be on display Friday, Jan. 25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Courthouse Square, 2200 Broadway in downtown.

"It was really important to us this time, given a second opportunity, to create a trophy tour which allowed us to connect with our fans, as well as the more than 20,000 kids who participate in our Junior Giants baseball program," said Larry Baer, Giants president and chief operating officer. 

At each viewing event, fans will have the chance to have their photo taken with the trophies - created by Tiffany & Co. - and support their local Junior Giants Baseball League by optionally making a suggested $2 donation to the program. 

For more information, visit the trophy tour website.

FYI, there is a chance they may move it to Courthouse Square instead, at the same time. We're trying to confirm that and will update this story ASAP if they do.

I wonder how many kids will be "sick" that day as well as employees that take an extra long lunch hour?

Unfortunately, that's the time and date we got.

Hard to "connect" with kids if the kids are supposed to be in school. If parents let them ditch it costs the school districts A LOT of money as they won't get paid for any absent students. Why didn't they schedule it on a weekend?
