Giants to play exhibition in Fresno

The Giants will stop in Fresno to play an exhibition game against their Triple-A affiliate March 26.

The game occurs as the Giants transition from spring training in Scottsdale, Ariz., to their final tune-ups in the Bay Area. No time has been set.

“Our organization is very proud of our affiliation with the Grizzlies and we look forward to giving Fresno an up close and personal look at the 2008 big league club,” Giants senior vice president and general manager Brian Sabean said in a statement released by the team. “This game is a great way to give back to a community that has helped foster future Giants for so long.”

San Francisco's top affiliate since 1998, the Grizzlies went 77-67 this year, the franchise's best record since the inaugural club went 81-62 and the first winning season since 1999.

The full Cactus League schedule will be announced next week.
