Giants 'dress like Pablo Sandoval' on flight to Philadelphia  

SAN DIEGO -- Pablo Sandoval walked out of the clubhouse Sunday afternoon wearing tight jeans, a long white shirt, three heavy gold chains and bright bedazzled shoes.

"You look like you!" closer Will Smith yelled

So did the rest of the Giants.

A team that's been riding high on the field decided to have a bit more fun off of it, going with a "Dress Like Pablo" theme for the evening flight to Philadelphia. After a few trips to the Gucci store and plenty of shopping on Amazon, lockers were filled with white jeans, red pants, bright printed shirts and the gaudiest jewelry players could find. Alex Dickerson added a Lakers hat to his ensemble and several players, including Buster Posey, wore big pairs of glasses.

Sandoval's energy and bat kept the Giants going through much of a rough first half, and he has continued to play a key role as the team has climbed back into the Wild Card race. It's been a heck of a comeback for a player who five years ago left for Boston and said he didn't miss most of his teammates.

"It shows there's a lot of forgiveness on this team," Posey said, smiling.

Nearly all of the Giants participated, although a few members of the traveling party did not know this was a day to bring ripped white jeans. Manager Bruce Bochy had his khakis and black shirt hanging in his locker after the game.

"I didn't get the memo," he said.

PHILADELPHIA/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Third-generation Philadelphia oil refinery worker Lee Murray wore his late father's hard hat every day of the 25 years he spent there. A colleague gave it to him on his first day on the job, only months after the older Murray died, an act emblematic of the tight bond workers forged at the East Coast's oldest and largest oil refinery. The hard hat now sits on a shelf, and Murray has moved from his roots a short drive from the refinery complex for work more than 300 miles (480 km) away, near Pittsburgh.

A man who served nearly three decades in prison for a triple killing in Philadelphia in what prosecutors called a "perfect storm" of injustice was freed after a judge threw out his conviction. "Theophalis Wilson, you are free to go," Judge Tracy Brandeis-Roman said Tuesday as extended family and friends who packed the courtroom cried and hugged each other, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. "This is a great day," said Wilson, 48, who served 28 years in prison.
