Hello and happy Thursday.

One of the fun traditions of San Francisco Giants home games is Metallica Night. Every year there’s a Metallica theme night, where the Giants-loving band performs the national anthem and throws out the first pitch, and the in-game festivities are centered around the group.

There obviously wasn’t a normal Metallica Night this year, since there wasn’t a normal season with fans to entertain.

But that didn’t stop the famous band from showing up at Oracle Park to perform their rendition of the anthem, and throw out the first pitch.

Awesome.
