  • cast member of Beach Blanket Babylon sang God Bless America“An earlier version of this column, using information from the San Francisco Giants, described incorrectly the cast member of ‘Beach Blanket Babylon’ who sang ‘God Bless America’ at Tuesday’s game while wearing a giant hat depicting the San Francisco skyline.
