It’s that time of year when we start gearing up for the new season.  Today the Giants starting filming television commercials for our 2013 campaign.  Sergio Romo, Pablo Sandoval, Bruce Bochy and Ryan Vogelsong all came to ballpark with their acting chops as well as their baseball skills.  A group of season ticket members also showed up to act as extras and give the ballpark a game-like feel.  Here’s a sneak peek.

Another Hot One

Ryan Vogelsong

It was another scorching day on the East Coast today.  Unfortunately the Pirates bats were also hot as the Pirates won 3-1.

Mad Bum!

Not a bad day at the office. In the third inning Madison Bumgarner hit his 1st Major League home run which snapped the Giants 16 game homerless streak at AT&T Park, their longest stretch as a franchise since 1918. It was the 1st HR the Giants have hit at home 514 at-bats. Oh yeah, in 7 2/3 innings he also struck out 12 and didn’t walk anyone for his 8th win of the season. Astros 3 – Giants 6

TURN BACK THE CLOCK… The Giants and Cubs wore replica uniforms from 1912 today… Some  elements from today’s turn back the century game include:

• The scoreboard had a vintage look and videos were not shown.
• There was a roving barber shop quartets outside the gates.
• Giants photographers, ushers, security guards, grounds keepers and other staff wore 1912 era garb.
• Only organ music was played the entire game.
