Giants Spring Training Pics and Today in Baseball History!

I was talking to a friend of mine at work. He was telling me he was going to the Giants Spring Training. I told him to try to snap a few pics for me. He came back and told me he didn’t take many pics but sent me what he did have. He was telling me it was a blast. They sat 3 rows behind the visitors dugout. Next year I need to plan it way in advance, so I can be sure to go. I keep saying I’m going to go but something always comes up. No excuses next year.

He’s happy to hear about Will Clark now working with the Giants organization and loves how the Giants bring back the players to be part of the organization after their playing days.
They also asked Orlando what he thought about Manny Ramirez and if he would like to see him with the Giants. Cepeda said he would love to see Manny in the Giants uniform. He said the Giants have been after him since the beginning of free agency. He also can’t believe how Manny can turn down so much money right now with the economy.                                                                picture courtesy of weblo.com
