Family and friends came out to honor longtime San Francisco Giants fan Robin Williams during the fifth game of the World Series on October 26.

The late comedian's oldest son, Zak Williams, threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Billy Crystal at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Zak's siblings, Zelda and Cody, were also on hand for the celebration, which included a screened tribute reel of the actor's most iconic onscreen moments, as well as photos of his many visits to the ballpark.



There was even a clip of Williams getting the crowd fired up before a 2010 game.



The Williams children released a statement through the Giants about their decision to throw the first pitch, saying, “We are honored to be here in support of the tribute to our father, someone who loved his hometown and especially the Giants. For all of us, it is a tremendous delight and a little surreal to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of a World Series game for our team to our dad’s best friend. We could not think of a better way to celebrate his memory. Let’s go Giants!”

Robin Williams' family may have been a good luck charm: The Giants went on to beat the Kansas City Royals 5-0.
