My first baseball game was a Giants game. . I was an A’s fan but mainly because I lived in Oakland, well initially. I never lived in San Francisco. But my uncle Frank like the Giants and took my cousin and I to a number of games as a kid.
The first game I remember and I think it was my first game went 13 innings. Chris Speier hit a home run to our section. This was Bat day and I just happen to have one sign by Chris.
My first baseball book, hell it might be the only book on baseball I read was a bio of Willie Mays. A great book BTW.
So it’s nice to see the Giants win even if I don’t really follow them these days. At least it’s not NY again….
I do wish it was still Candlestick Park though. I hate the corporate names now.
