PEPC Night with the Giants

giants

 

Due to the great success of previous PEPC Giants outings, the PEPC Board has purchased 64 tickets just beyond third base (LB128 section) for the Giants v. Rockies game on Thursday, June 25th at Oracle Park in San Francisco (previously AT&T Park).  With the tailgate party beginning at 4 pm, Curveball Food Truck with its famous sliders coming at 5, and the game starting at 6:45, we are set for a dynamic evening of networking, fun, excitement and (hopefully) victory.  Tickets for all this are just $65/person.  Members can purchase up to 8 tickets.

As this is being written, Giants pitchers and catchers are reporting to spring training in Scottsdale.  By any measure, this will be a year of rebuilding under the new president of baseball operations, Farhan Zaidi.

Some of the injuries that plagued key players last year show signs of resolution. Posey’s hip surgery appears successful, Samardzija seems to be progressing and Will Smith figures to improve upon 2108.

After solid rookie starts last year, Dereck Rodriguez and Andrew Suarez both look to build on their success in the upcoming season, particularly with Queto out due to Tommy John surgery.

The recent signing of Drew Pomeranz, coming off an injury plagued 2018, provides hope that he repeats the season he had with Boston in 2017 and will earn a spot in the rotation mix along with newly re-signed Derek Holland.

With Bumgarner beginning his 10th season and anchoring the pitching group, this could well be a ‘pitching year’ for the Orange and Black.

The Giants are taking steps to bolster their ‘just average’ outfield, retaining Dugger and recently signing former Rockies veteran outfielder, Gerardo Parra, who can play all 3 outfield positions.  Baseball operations head, Zaidi, indicates there is money left for two more outfielders…stay tuned.

And the latest news…the skipper, Bruce Bochy, has announced that he is retiring at the end of the 2019 season. This is the manager who led us to three World Championships.  Come and see him in his last year managing the Giants.

Don’t miss this year’s PEPC Giants game on June 25th.
