The San Francisco Giants observed a moment of silence for Robin Williams before Tuesday night's game with the Chicago White Sox:

The Giants also showed a video tribute of the comedian that included a clip from Mrs. Doubtfire, which was both filmed in and took place in San Francisco.

Upon the actor's passing, team president Larry Baer released a statement:

We were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Robin Williams. Robin was a true artist who brought joy to the world through his brilliance, humor, talent and love for our community. We lost one of our greatest fans today and he will be deeply missed by the Giants family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Robin's family and the entire community during this difficult time.

Williams was a huge Giants fan, appearing before Game 1 of the 2010 National League Division Series to pump up the crowd at AT&T Park.
