Major League Head Shot Day

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Starting at 7 AM this morning the 95 coaches and players at our Major League camp stopped by to have their official head shot taken – this is when we take the images we use on the scoreboard at AT&T Park, in the Giants Magazine, Yearbook, Media Guide and other publications through the year.  After their formal portrait it taken we always take an additional photo for when we need a casual studio shot.
