Belt being congratulated by teammates after going deep

The young first basemen, Brandon Belt, had high hopes when he made the team out of spring training and got the opening day start.  Unfortunately soon after, things started to spin out of control for the young lefty as nothing was going his way.  Due to some injuries and roster changes Belt got another opportunity to prove himself in the majors, the only question was if he’d take advantage of this chance.

Do You Feel Perfect?! Cuz I Feel Perfect!!

Cain’s teammates celebrating with him after his perfect game


I work in the Coca-Cola Fan Lot at AT&T Park and Wednesday was just like any other day, or so I thought.  As my co-workers and I were getting ready to start the night we were expecting a good game with Cain on the hill, but nothing like what we saw.  Cain wasn’t the only one on fire for the Giants on the night of June 13th, which will go down in history forever, the offense was also ready to go.
