Outtakes

The Kiwi Experience

On July 19, Giants players had the opportunity to meet four members of New Zealand’s s World Champion All Black rugby team.  They made a cultural exchange, with Giants’ players Ryan Vogelsong and George Kontos teaching the rugby players how to grip a fastball and swing a bat.  Aaron Smith, Victor Vito, Conrad Smith and Sam Cane showed them in return how to punt and pass a rugby ball.

Not So Sweet 16

It took 5 hours and 26 minutes for the Mets to win this game – the Giants definitely didn’t go down without a fight.
