Giants celebrate would-be home opener virtually under physical distancing orders


On the day their season was supposed to start at Oracle Park, the San Francisco Giants are guaranteeing themselves a win.

It won’t be starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija or newcomer Mauricio Dubon or even veteran catcher Buster Posey being the hero, but Travis Ishikawa yet again.

As the Bay Area and the country stays away from one another, the Giants will have an “Opening Day at Home,” which will include the re-broadcast of the 2014 NLCS Game 5, which (spoiler alert) the Giants won in pretty spectacular fashion.

NBC Sports Bay Area and sfgiants.com will host the virtual festivities beginning at 1:35 p.m. Friday. The national anthem will be performed by Jake Peavy, Renel Brooks-Moon will announce the lineups.

Play-by-play announcer Mike Krukow also shared a message for all the fans this morning.

“It hurts me to see the ballpark stand empty…We will play again, we will play baseball, and we will again share in this great game.”

It won’t be Giants-Dodgers at home, but it will be baseball on your TV screens and computers.

 

Win!
