Things vanish and are replaced at the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park all the time, so a lost Barry Bonds commemorative plaque shouldn’t be a big deal, a team spokeswoman said Wednesday.
“It’s a stadium with 41,000 people, things disappear from the ballpark and we replace them,” said Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter. “It’s a wooden, painted sign.”
The team said it will replace the sign.
Slaughter and Giants officials are in the midst of a busy week. The team has been receiving a flurry of calls since news broke that a commemorative plaque honoring Barry Bonds’ record-breaking 756th home run hanging at the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park mysteriously disappeared.
Slaughter said the sign disappeared a few days ago, but couldn’t offer more specifics. She did not know who noticed it or pointed its absence to the Giants.
