That jersey is now on display in AT&T Park's club level. In fact, the team's vice president of communications, Staci Slaughter, notes that the Giants "spent hundreds of thousands of dollars" on display cases around the stadium so more items from the archive can now be enjoyed by the paying crowds.
What to do with Velez' jersey in the long-run, however, has not yet been determined. Slaughter said the team may start to ponder this once the Giants head of town Thursday for their second road trip of the year. Our suggestion: Auction it off and donate the proceeds to a literacy foundation. That seems fitting.
Finally, we wrote the other day that people would buy Barry Zito's boss black socks with the three orange stripes if given the opportunity. Well, you've got it: They're at the team dugout stores. But they'll set you back $15. And that's no misprint.
