Giants finally find their general manager in Cubs' Harris  

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The San Francisco Giants hired Scott Harris from the Chicago Cubs to become general manager, filling a void of more than a year after the club had gone without a GM during president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi's first season in the position.

That's one big hire done, another still to go.

The Giants this past week had narrowed down their search for a new manager to three finalists: former Phillies manager Gape Kapler, Astros bench coach Joe Espada and Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro.

During seven seasons with the Cubs, Harris had most recently been Cubs assistant GM under president Theo Epstein and GM Jed Hoyer. Harris, born in Redwood City outside San Francisco, also worked two years for Major League Baseball as coordinator of major league operations.

Zaidi said: ''We're thrilled to be able to bring in an executive of Scott's caliber to help lead our baseball operations group. The combination of his breadth of experience, contributions toward building a championship-winning perennial contender in Chicago, and his Bay Area roots made him an ideal fit for our General Manager position and I'm looking forward to executing our vision together.''

San Francisco police will stop releasing the mug shots of people who have been arrested unless they pose a threat to the public, as part of an effort to stop perpetuating racial stereotypes, the city's police chief announced Wednesday. San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott said the policy, which goes into effect immediately, means the department will no longer release booking photos of suspects to the media or allow officers to post them online. Booking photos are taken when someone is arrested.
