Robin Williams - San Francisco Giants Add Tributes To Williams

Tragic Robin Williams' beloved baseball team the San Francisco Giants have added to the tributes pouring in for the late funnyman, following his death on Monday (11Aug14).

Williams was the Giants' lucky charm when they won the World Series for the first time in over 50 years in 2010, and he welcomed fans to the team's At&T Park home for their National League Division Series kick-off game against the Atlanta Braves by referencing his line from hit movie Good Morning, Vietnam by yelling, "Good Evening, San Francisco!"

The Giants won the game and went on to win the title, and after learning of the comedian's death, the team's president Larry Baer issued a statement, which read: "We were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Robin Williams. Robin was a true artist who brought joy to the world through his brilliance, humor, talent and love for our community. We lost one of our greatest fans today and he will be deeply missed by the Giants family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Robin's family and the entire community during this difficult time."

Meanwhile, fans paid their respects to the Oscar winner, who committed suicide at his home in Marin County, California, by placing memorials outside Boulder, Colorado home which served as the location for the actor's cult Tv series Mork & Mindy.

Fans also gathered at the bench, which featured in Williams' film Good Will Hunting, in Boston Public Garden in Massachusetts. The late comic's star on the Walk of Fame has also become a makeshift memorial, covered with flowers and candles.
