Pablo Sandoval, Matt Cain and Melky Cabrera thank 4 Superfans

Never before has one fan base so powerfully demonstrated their might to elect their players into the starting line up, nor has any single team dominated the Game quite like the Giants did this year.  Simply put, your votes played a very distinct role in helping the NL win this game.  As NL All-Star Ryan Braun put it, “Whoever ends up in the World Series (from the National League) should thank everybody in Giants Nation for their votes.”  Last Friday night we asked 4 superfans, Luis, Kevin, Michael and Tyler (representing the Melkmen) to join our All-Stars on the field and receive jersey’s signed by all the 2012 Giants All-Stars.

Melky Cabrera shows off his MVP Award

Tonight in Kansas City it was a Giants All Star Game.  Matt Cain got the win for the National League in the 8-0 shutout and Pablo Sandoval tripled in the first inning to drive in 3 runs, including Buster Posey.  Melky Cabrera didn’t do too badly either.  For going 2 for 3 with a home run and driving in 2 runs, he won the Ted Williams MVP Award (ironically enough, the last Giants player to win the award was Bobby Bonds, in 1973, when the game was also held in Kansas City).  Congratulations to our great fans who voted in the Stars of the All Star Game!
