Meanwhile, almost the entire team went to the Supreme Court as guests of Justice Anthony Kennedy, a Californian and Giants fan. Also speaking to the team were justices Clarence Thomas, Sam Alito and Sonia Sotomayor. The players learned that Sotomayor essentially forced the end of the crippling 1994-95 baseball strike by siding with the players in a ruling over signing free agents and holding arbitration hearings during the strike. The star of the show, as usual, was the World Series trophy, which was brought to the court so the justices could see it. It was covered in a Tiffany bag and had to go through the metal detector. The guard required the trophy be removed from the bag so they could see what it was. Giants photographer Missy Mikulecky said when the guard saw the the trophy, a big smile crossed his face.
