Play Ball Lunch

To kick off the 2014 season, the San Francisco Giants and Manager Bruce Bochy, Giants broadcasters, alumni and executives joined over 1,000 fans at the Giants Community Fund’s annual Play Ball Lunch presented by Blue Shield of California. 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Junior Giants, the flagship program of the Giants Community Fund. The entire 2014 Giants team was in attendance.  A select number of Junior Giants players from local leagues had the opportunity to sit with a Giants player or coach during the luncheon.
