2014 marked the third time in five years that the San Francisco Giants celebrated a World Series victory since moving to San Francisco. As with even year tradition, fan filled the streets of San Francisco to celebrate with their beloved Orange and Black. Jon Miller (Instagram account ) has been part of the broadcast team since 1997 and is the familiar voice that paints the game in our minds as we listen on KNBR. Miller can be seen standing at the podium as he introduces the players and coaching staff on to the stage.
Half of the duo known as “Miller and Flem”, Jon provides exciting play-by-play over the airwaves while injecting humor, baseball history, and commentary that keeps fans listening to a master of his craft. His most recent notable example of his showmanship and quick thinking being Hunter Pences grand slam during the home opener off of Pedro Baez (LAD). The call became an instant viral sensation to where Giants fans across the Bay Area generated memes based on the call instantly.
It’s safe to say that Jon Miller will be heading to the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of the all time bests.
Even though Nori Aoki was with the San Francisco Giants for only the 2015 season, he was beloved and brought excitement to every at bat and whenever he took the field.
Sadly he would not be returning to the Giants for the 2016 season. Hopefully he has a successful season with the Mariners and is seen playing at AT&T Park in the near future.
The Giants Client Realations team’s Twitter account (@SFGiantsSTM) has been retweeting a lot of the Giants season ticket holders tweeting about receiving their season tickets in the mail. This is great seeing all the fans getting ready for baseball season and the Giants Client Relations team getting in on all the fun on social media. The entire organization is amazingly social savvy and great to see more and more parts of the front office interacting with fans in their own way. This year, it was a nice surprise to see a case for the season tickets and a little something to commemorate the fans that fill AT&T Park every home game.
Check out the video and let me know what you think, send me a tweet if you’d like to see more unboxings or just more pictures of our favorite team in baseball!
