Giants Get an Early Start for Media Day
Earlier this morning the Giants held their annual media and photo day at 7 a.m. at Scottsdale Stadium. The Giants photography department, Associated Press, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, Getty Images, MLB.com, Topps and Sports Illustrated for Kids were just a few of the companies that were in attendance to shoot photos and conduct brief interviews with all the players and coaches.
All 62 players in camp participated in the mandatory shoot, along with all the Major League coaches, training staff and a few minor league coaches that are helping out the first few weeks of spring.
Everyone was instructed to wear their white uniform pants and to bring their glove, spring jersey and hat. The coaches went first starting at 7:30, followed by players with the least amount of Major League service time (Gary Brown, Tommy Joseph, Juan Perez, etc.) to the players with the most (DeRosa, Rowand, Tejada, Zito, etc.).
12 different stations were set up inside and outside of the visitors clubhouse and Giants staffers barked instructions and ensured a smooth delivery of players and coaches to their appointments. It took roughly 25 minutes for each player to go through every station and after two hours photo day was done.
Check out some pics from the day.
I love that Tim is standing next to a washing machine! Ahh, the glamour of Major League Baseball…
