Yesterday, two young Giants celebrated some milestones. Connor Joe recorded his first major league hit, and Travis Bergen got his first major league win.
Kerry Crowley noted this after the game:
We may not hear from manager Bruce Bochy for a bit. Connor Joe and Travis Bergen are likely getting beer showers.— Kerry Crowley (@KO_Crowley) April 6, 2019
Great stuff, you love to see it. From the way things have gone so far, it’s safe to say that it is likely going to be a long, painful season, so the Giants have opted to celebrate the small moments that mean a lot and help get them through the daily grind.
But, umm, what is this?
Beer is one thing. It’s a bit weird when you really stop to think about it, but it’s pretty normal in the context of post-game celebrations. But milk?? And not just milk, but a milk and beer combo? That hurts my stomach just thinking about it.
Anyway, one last thing I wanted to share from yesterday’s game and it is this absolutely awesome picture of Connor Joe that the Giants’ Instagram account posted. It really captures the joy behind it all.
