On Saturday, the Giants hosted their annual On Field Photo Day. What has become a tradition for Giants fans, is also an enjoyable experience for Giants players and coaches. 3,000 fans came to the park early for a chance to meet some of their favorite 2010 Giants as they line up in a circle in center field of AT&T Park. Players then make their way around the circle for a chance to interact with some of the Giants most passionate fans. And I mean PASSIONATE! Some were lined up before 8am.
I wish there was an On Field Photo Day back when I was a kid in the 80s, and seeing all of the young fans getting photos with their favorite Giants players is really cool. Of course, Lincecum is probably the most popular, and getting a photo with Tim is a prized possession. But Zito, Sandoval, Affeldt and Romo were also in high demand, and doing more talking than posing. Some fans didn’t even bring a camera, just wanted to be on the field and play catch.
I was truly impressed with some Giants who were literally pulled off the field, they were having as much fun as the fans. Barry Zito must have taken the most photos, and a night after going 4-0, he was in hot demand.
This is truly a special day, maybe not as popular as a Wearable Blanket or a bobblehead giveaway, but those who attend on field photo day go home with memories that will last a lifetime.
Were you one of the lucky fans on the field? Let us know your experience and share some of your photos.
Hey fans, in case you haven’t heard, we’re in a rain delay!!! I haven’t seen any cats or dogs, but I wouldn’t put it past Mother Nature to throw in a few.
Being in the scoreboard room during a rain delay is interesting. It’s our job to entertain the fans under all circumstances, so we have to prepare lots of rain delay content. At the moment we’re showing the 2010 Masters and before that, since it’s the 10th anniversary of the first game at AT&T Park, we showed interviews of players from the 2000 team. A highlight was definitely seeing Barry Bonds, and the fans enjoyed seeing him as well.
Speaking of the fans, check out these pictures of the greatest fans in baseball! Shout out to the girls with the super cute rain boots!!
