San Francisco has a case of Baseball Fever!
- High fiving strangers on the street
- Draping yourself in orange and black
- Getting “sick” if you’re still working at game time
- Asking everyone you know if they have an extra ticket
The only known cure is heading to AT&T Park; or, watching the playoffs on TV.
The Giants are back in the NLCS
Recently, postseason baseball in San Francisco seems like an annual event.
The Giants won the World Series in 2010 and 2012.
Now, they are one NLCS win away from being back in the “Fall Classic.”
Sounds like the making of a dynasty to me!
Game 4 of the 2014 NLCS
Over the past five years, only two NL teams have played in the World Series: the San Francisco Giants and the St. Louis Cardinals.
In 2012, the Giants beat the Cards in a thrilling seven game NLCS.
This is the rematch!
The Giants Win 6 – 4!!!!
Game 4 of the 2014 NLCS was a wild one from the start.
Neither starting pitcher had their best stuff; and, after three innings, the teams had combined for 13 hits and 6 runs.
This was going to be a long night.
Every Giants postseason game seems to involve some sort of comeback.
Game 4 of the 2014 NLCS was no different.
. . .
As I stood in my seat high above left field, the Giants rallied for three runs in 6th inning to retake the lead.
The upper deck was shaking; as 43,000 fans jumped up and down, high-fived each other and cheered as loud as possible.
By the time Hunter Pence popped out to end the inning, the score was 6-4.
It was all the Giants would need.
Photographing the American Flag
Photographing baseball games and stadiums is one of my biggest passions.
I especially love when when teams roll out a giant American flag before important games.
Over the past five years in San Francisco, I’ve been fortunate to attend several of these games.
Below are my favorite photographs from home openers and playoff games at AT&T Park.
