OK, so maybe it’s a little early to start thinking about another Bay Bridge series. But Bay Area baseball fans have a lot to be excited about as the Major League Baseball postseason nears. On Wednesday, the Oakland A’s, unheralded for much of the season, completed a sweep of the Texas Rangers to win the AL West; they’ll start the playoffs in Detroit on Saturday. The San Francisco Giants, meanwhile, clinched the NL West in late September; they open the postseason Saturday at AT&T Park against Cincinnati.

This Bay baseball sweep has fans celebrating in some pretty creative ways. They’re making Giants cookies, putting on their green-and-yellow ties and joining their families in playoff preparation. Here’s a look at some of the ways Bay Area fans are rooting for their teams. Are you preparing for a World Series run by putting together a unique orange-and-black or yellow-and-green outfit? We’d love to see it. Take a photo and post a link to it in the comments below.
