San Francisco Giants honored by Obama for being the first "green" Major League Baseball team

Fresh fruit and vegetables might not seem like the most traditional thing to munch on at a baseball game, but the San Francisco Giants plan to be the first team with an organic garden in right in the middle of their stadium.

Proving to be such an ambitious project, President Obama thought it worth mentioning while he praised the team at the White House on Monday for their 2012 World Series championship.

The “Giants Garden” will be a 3,000-square-foot organic garden planted behind the center-field wall, as well as the space between the left- and right-field bleachers. It would replace space that is mostly filled with concrete right now – as well as become the first such facility at any professional sports venue in the United States.
