Let’s Review Social Media night…but 1st? Let me take a #SFGSelfie

Last night was Social Media Night at AT&T Park (aka #SFGSocial Night). Let’s take a social media review and look back at all the festivities…

It all started with a fan contest to create the special event giveaway…and that idea went to #SFGiants fan @JeremySasson who created the meme #BusterHugs. The final product was a Tshirt available to all special event attendees https://twitter.com/SFGiants/status/466748591587864579

The next step was a #BusterHugs Contest held on Instagram. @Zollner_T was our winner from this adorable moment

To kick off #SFSGSocial Night, Pablo Sandoval agreed to chat with fans via Facebook and Twitter…We had to wait for the conclusion of the USA vs BEL soccer match. Unfortunately, the game ended with the US on the losing side, but Panda was still in a good mood

 We learned a lot from @KFP48, but the highlight was when Angie Lopez asked Panda to hit a HR for her son’s Birthday…

 Panda went on to hit career HR #100. You’re welcome Angie!

As fans entered the ballpark, #SFGSocial fans were excited to get their #BusterHugs shirts

 Then we held a SNAPCHAT Contest and 9 lucky fans claimed their prize in the @CafeSFG. They had no idea what they won…BUt all 9 were SHOCKED when they found out they were then chosen to take the field with the #SFGiants and each take a selfie right before the game

 And to top it off, the #SFGiants beat the #STLCards 5-0, and everyone went home happy! Thank you to AT&T who was a proud sponsor of Social Media Night and to the most engaged fans in all of SPORTS! #ThankYou

#MetallicaNight…and NOTHING ELSE MATTERS

The @SFGiants hosted their 2nd annual #MetallicaNight last night at AT&T Park.  The night was highlighted by an epic National Anthem by James Hetfield and Kirk Hammet, an Instagram takeover by Robert Trujillo, 1st pitch by Lars Ulrich, and night of Metal themed fun.  Here are some of the highlights..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#AskKuip a Hit with Fans!

On Friday, the Giants celebrated former Giant and beloved broadcaster, Duane Kuiper’s 1st career HR with a bobblehead giveaway.  As part of the day, Kuip was gracious enough to spend some time answering questions for fans on a Twitter Chat.  As always, Kuip delivered.  Here’s a sample of his chat:

Belt predicted 74 Home Runs back in February

Back in February, the Giants hosted a fan Twitter Q&A with fans as part of Media Day.  A handful of Giants took part, including First Baseman Brandon Belt.  When @Gigantes_SF put Belt on the spot and asked him how many HRs he would hit, Brandon didn’t flinch:

Through 4 games, Belt leads the National League with 3 Home Runs.  He is technically on pace for 121 Home runs.  One thing Belt doesn’t lack this season is confidence.   Stay Hot Brandon Belt

Lights, Camera, Photo Day…

Early Sunday morning, Scottsdale Stadium turned into a photo studio.  Each spring, media outlets ranging from MLB, USA Today, CSNBayArea, and Baseball Digest just to name a few, set up shop to capture head shots, video and more for each member of the Giants.  Players begin lining up at 7am and go from station to station (over 10) to have their photo taken which will be seen on website profiles, scoreboard and television headshots and even baseball cards.  Here are some of the highlights from today’s #SFGPhotoDay:

Saturday in the Park
