It’s Throwback Thursday at Around the Foghorn and my goal today is to put a smile on your face. Today’s throwback isn’t actually that far back, but after losing to the Colorado Rockies last night, I needed to see this.
I’m going to admit. I teared up a little bit watching this. I make no apologies for it.
My favorite part of the whole thing (aside from the actual home runs) was Jon Miller’s call after the 3rd home run.
And Pablo Sandoval looks like the Babe himself come back to life!
Yes, it was a beautiful moment
Also, just as an added bonus, here’s a “today in Giants history” lesson for you.
That’s mighty impressive. In fact, Barr is tied for 2nd for consecutive retired batters.
