Giants closer Sergio Romo makes statement with parade T-shirt

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

Overlooked in the tumult of Wednesday's World Series parade in San Francisco was the "soft" political statement made by Giants closer Sergio Romo and his T-shirt:

Matt O'Brien of the San Jose Mercury News provides some context and background:

Romo, a son of Mexican immigrants, said nothing publicly Wednesday about the shirt and partially concealed its message with a zip-up hoodie when he held the World Series trophy behind crooner Tony Bennett.

He did, however, thank fans in a speech celebrating the Bay Area's diversity and its "different folks with different strokes" and "different faces from different places," then flashed the message on his way back from the lectern.
