His kids said in a statement: ”We are honored to be here in tribute to our father, someone who loved his hometown and especially the Giants. For all of us, it is a tremendous delight and a little surreal to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of a World Series game for our team to our dad’s best friend. We could not think of a better way to celebrate his memory. Let’s go Giants!”And Billy later told fans he had had a ”great night” at the game. He tweeted: ”Great nite at WS in SF. Caught first pitch strike thrown by Zak Williams Robins son.Fans showered him with love. (sic)” The Giants went on to win the game 11-4.
