Fox Sports Presents What A Ride: The 2002 San Francisco Giants

Show Debuts Saturday, February 1 at 9:00 AM

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — 2002 for the Giants and their fans brought a succession of great moments – a nail-biting pennant race, Barry Bonds' pursuit of 600 home runs, clutch performances by a gritty, veteran team – and while it didn't end with a World Series victory, it was certainly a thrilling ride. Fox Sports Net relives the magic of the 2002 season with "What A Ride: The 2002 San Francisco Giants."

"What a Ride" chronicles the great moments of 2002, through exclusive highlight footage shot by the Giants' Emmy-award winning broadcast crew and exclusive interviews with Brian Sabean, Dave Righetti, Duane Kuiper, and J.T. Snow. Narrated by Jon Miller, the half-hour show examines the ups and downs of the regular season – during which the Giants were written off countless times – and documents the National League Division Series and Championship Series, culminating with Kenny Lofton's RBI single that put the Giants into the World Series.

Fans will enjoy this tribute to a team that wouldn't quit, thanks to an attitude expressed in the show by pitching coach Dave Righetti: "We're gonna win anyway." No matter what hardships the Giants faced in 2002, that slogan helped them outlast the rest of the National League and reach the 7th game of the World Series. "What a Ride" captures the spirit that took the Giants all the way to baseball's pinnacle.
