The final rounds of the World Baseball Classic got off to a great start tonight. A highlight of the pregame festivities was Orlando Cepeda bringing out the first pitch balls to the managers of the last 2 WBC tournaments winners. The Giants on both sides of the Pacific were represented tonight, with Angel Pagan batting lead off for Puerto Rico and Sadaharu Oh throwing out the first pitch. Tomorrow we can look forward to a couple more Giants one the field when BamBam Meulens brings his Netherlands team to AT&T Park to face Santiago Casilla with the Dominican Republic.
Thousands of fans came to AT&T Park today for the Giants’ annual Fan Fest. Fans were able get autographs, listen to the players being interviewed for KNBR, ask questions themselves and take pictures with the growing collection of trophies at Pier 48. Thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed the day!
