Giants, D-backs commemorate 9/11 heroes in pregame ceremony

SAN FRANCISCO -- In remembrance of the lives lost in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against the United States, the Giants held a special pregame ceremony at AT&T Park before their Thursday afternoon game against the D-backs.

Prior to the first pitch, both teams lined up on the baselines for a moment of silence and the national anthem.

San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White and S.F. Police Chief Greg Suhr threw ceremonial first pitches to Giants pitcher George Kontos and D-backs outfielder Cody Ross, respectively.
