TV audiences didn’t get to see the warm tribute that long-time San Francisco Giants fan Robin Williams received before Game 5 of the World Series. And that’s a pity.

On hand for the pre-game tribute were the comedian’s three children. Son Zak threw out the first pitch to his dad’s close friend, Billy Crystal.

Then Zak took the mic and addressed the crowd.

“He loved you, he loved the Giants, so love him back,” said Zak.

A clip of Williams pumping up fans during the 2010 postseason, when the Giants won the World Series, then appeared on the scoreboard.

Williams took his life in August.
