Hot Stove Time

Again this winter, I'll share some interesting images taken over the past season that didn't make into any posts. Today, the statue of Walter Johnson, Washington's greatest baseball hero, in the outfield concourse of Nationals Park.

How Could I Have Known...

...before a Cactus League game on March 8th that these would be the Giants players whose home runs that fall would be the winning blasts in the National League Championship Series and World Series? Premonition? Good fortune? How ironic that for a franchise known for the home run heroics of Willie Mays , Willie McCovey and Orlando Cepeda and the prolific-if-tainted blasts of Barry Bonds, the two most important home runs in San Francisco Giants history would be hit by (#5) Juan Uribe and (#16) Edgar Renteria! 13 years after delivering the game winning hit for the Marlins in game 7 of the 1997 World Series classic, Renteria's three-run blast in the 7th inning gave the Giants the runs they needed to take this series in five.
