Giants to help victims of San Bruno fire

SAN DIEGO -- The Giants announced Friday that they will dedicate their next home game, Tuesday's series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers, to victims of the San Bruno fire.

The team will donate $3 from every ticket sold to the City of San Bruno Glenview Fire Victims Fund and will collect donations from fans attending the game.

Among the luckier residents was Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker, who has kept his Bay Area home since leaving the Giants. The fires raged uncomfortably close to Baker's property.

"That's about three blocks from my San Francisco house that I've had for 15 years," Baker told Cincinnati-area reporters. "My son had some schoolmates that lost their houses. My daughter had some schoolmates that lost their houses."

Suddenly, the Reds' 1-6 record on their recent trip seemed less significant.

"It sort of eased my pain last night about the road trip by putting things in the proper perspective," Baker said. "This is very important, but when I think about those people, they'd trade with me in a minute."
