Hello and happy Monday. I apologize if this video is something you’ve already seen, as it’s half a year old. But It’s been a rough few months for baseball fans, and it put a smile on my face, so I thought it would put a smile on yours. It’s Monday, after all. You deserve something to lift you up.
It’s a 10-minute compilation that the San Francisco Giants put together, reliving the greatest moments of the decade.
And my goodness what moments there were. World Series wins. MVPs. Postseason heroics. No-hitters. Perfect games. Grand slams. Pitcher dingers. Sentimental retirements. And so on, and so forth.
It’ll make you smile, and perhaps cry.
My personal favorite moment? The segment they showed on saying goodbye to forever Giants, which featured Hunter Pence, who would return to the Giants just a month after they released the video. What a happy mistake.
Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?
What do you think?
June 15, 1993: Against the Cincinnati Reds, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 7th inning off of Bobby Ayala, scoring Robby Thompson. It cut the Giants deficit to 7-5, and they would lose 10-5. It was his 18th homer of the year.
June 15, 2001: Against the Oakland A’s, Bonds hit 2 solo home runs off of Mark Mulder. A 1st inning shot gave the Giants a 1-0 lead, and a 6th inning blast gave the Giants a 3-1 lead, which was the final score. They were his 35th and 36th homers of the year.
June 15, 2003: Against the Kansas City Royals, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 4th inning off of Jose Lima. It gave the Giants a 3-2 lead, but they would lose 5-4. It was his 19th homer of the year.
Have a great Monday, everyone.
