FanFest for the San Francisco Giants is on Saturday, which means fans can shuffle into Oracle Park for the first time this year to see their favorite (and least favorite) players, managers, coaches, front office members, and media people.
And then everyone will promptly disperse, because the Giants are needed in Arizona and the fans don’t have anything else to do at Oracle Park for six weeks.
On Wednesday, the Giants released the full list of people who will be attending FanFest. Check it out:
Now, let me be the 5,769th person to make the “Madison Bumgarner still isn’t coming to FanFest” joke. There, I made it. Ha, ha, the masses roar in laughter. I’ll be here all week. And then some.
There are the names you love, like Buster Posey and Brandons Belt and Crawford, and Dave Flemming, and Renel Brook-Moon. There are the names you probably don’t love, like Larry Baer and Gabe Kapler. There are the players you forgot were on the Giants until reading this list, like Drew Smyly.
There are also all the coaches, which as Bryan noted on Twitter, is a first for the Giants.
So there you have it. Here comes FanFest. Here comes baseball.
