Gamer Babes

The Giants had the the 1st Annual Gamer Day at AT&T Park today! The term “Gamer” is often said by Giants alumni and beloved broadcaster Mike Krukow, when describing women who love Giants baseball. Over the years, it has been formalized from the passion of millions of Giants fans all across the country.  Today, special event ticket holders received early ballpark entry to a private Q&A session with Mike Krukow, leader of the movement, as well as a ticket to the game versus the Rockies. This “open-mic” event included baseball chatter, stories and entertaining anecdotes from Krukow, Giants players and coaches, and other Giants Gamer supporters.
