SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The crazy crowd scene at AT&T Park resembled opening day in April. Giants pitcher Brian Wilson and catcher Buster Posey needed a police escort to make their way through the concourse.

Tens of thousands of black-and-orange clad fans flooded the ballpark on Saturday to greet and cheer the World Series champions at San Francisco’s annual FanFest.

The Giants had to turn away many who turned out on spectacular afternoon with the temperature pushing 70 degrees and the scent of garlic fries in the air. One line was about three football fields long, stretching around McCovey Cove beyond right field.

Some of those who did make it inside waited up to four hours to get autographs. Others just gave up and left in frustration.
