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.

Please take this opportunity to share your authoritative opinions on the hot-button political issues of the day.
