Saltzman Says...Ring Ceremony takes the cake

Sergio Romo shows off the 2010 Championship ring
'It's going to be my best day in professional ball,'' said Bruce Bochy, San Francisco's fifth-year skipper. ''It's going to be one of the greatest days in a lot of these players' careers to get a ring. It's going to have very special meaning.''

The very first ring went to longtime equipment manager Mike Murphy, who has been with the club since starting as a bat boy in '58. Sabean was next, followed by Bochy.

''This is one you'll want to wear,'' Bochy said. ''I'll wear it all the time. I don't wear jewelry so to speak, but I'll wear this with a lot of pride.''

The rings are primarily white gold. The top features the team's ''SF'' logo set with round diamonds encircled by a bezel of yellow gold flanked by two round diamonds. One side of the ring says 2010 with a yellow gold tower of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. The other side features the recipient's name in a ribbon over the World Series trophy.

Within the top of the trophy is one mandarin orange spessartite garnet stone representing San Francisco's title with five diamonds below the trophy's base for the five Giants titles won in New York.
