You’ll always be known as one of the greatest to ever wear the Giants uniform.
Time sure did fly by. It feels like yesterday you made your debut at AT&T Park, won a couple World Series, shared your love of coffee, dominating in Smash Bros., were making amazing plays on the field, and helping to welcome the newest members of the Orange and Black and mentoring them on what it means to be a San Francisco Giant.
I decided to start something new with the wallpaper calendars for your computers. Going forward I’m going to try to include two different wallpapers for you to enjoy, one will be showcasing the San Francisco Giants and the other will feature the Minor League San Jose Giants. I’m hoping to accomplish a few goals by taking this approach, the first being to allow some variety in the wallpapers available to you, second showcasing the San Jose Giants who graciously provided media access to myself so as to be able to take some unique and amazing shots, and finally to showcase players that may one day be seen playing at AT&T Park. This month will feature the ballpark of these two teams.
We close out 2016 with the man that closed out the 2014 World Series, Madison Bumgarner. One of the many “Homegrown” players that fill the SF Giants roster he has become a star and legend in MLB History with his incredible postseason performance.
Not only is Madison Bumgarner one of the best pitchers in baseball, he’s also known for one of the few pitchers who “rake” or are an offensive threat when at bat.
Need an Xmas gift idea for that San Francisco Giants fan on your holiday shopping list? Your buddy Kuro has some great idea’s on how to make that Giants fan or baseball fan on your list happier than if they hit a home run off Kershaw!
Game Used Item – Have a Deadhead or Parrothead that’d love a “K” Board hanging on their wall? Maybe a signed Jarrett Parker baseball is on someones wishlist? Whoever the fan is, there’s probably something for every Giant fan at the online SF Giants Dugout Store. But still looking for that extra special something you can’t find online, maybe a game used ball from a specific game? Send an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org” with what you’re looking for and they’ll try to do their best! Remember if you’re a season ticket holder to let them know, you should be able to use your 20% Season Ticket Holder discount.
The first of the offseason wallpaper calendar features former SF Giants 3rd baseman Matt Duffy (@mm_duffy on Twitter and Instagram). Beloved by the fans and his teammates, fans were stunned to hear Duffy was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays before the 2016 trade deadline.
Heading down memory lane, Matt Duffy was called up August of 2014 and was one of the handful of rookies that were able to play in the World Series against the Kansas City Royals. He took over 3rd base midway through the 2015 season and would become the first SF Giants rookie to win the Willie Mac Award that same year.
