The San Jose Giants have finished with the top overall record in their league. The baby Giants have just wrapped up their last homestand before the High Class A playoffs at Municipal Stadium in San Jose this Saturday. The team secured home field advantage by winning the first half of the season. Here is some information on the California League playoff procedures.
#SJGiants finish the regular season with a league-best 3.66 ERA. 8th time in last 10 years with the best team ERA in the Cal League.

A few players from the Giants to put on your radar (if you haven’t already):
Kyle Crick (RHP, 3-1, 1.57 ERA) – Starting pitcher was selected for 2013 Futures Games this year. His fastball registers 99 MPH pretty often.
Mac Williamson (RF) – Highest BA on the team at .292 in 136 games in 2013. 25 HRs and 89 RBIs. Named California League Offensive Player of the Week for the week ending on August 25.
Devin Harris (RF) also has a lot of power with 25 HRs but only has a .258 BA. He leads the California League with 40 doubles this season.
If you haven’t been to a game yet, I would highly recommend checking them out before the end of next week. Most of these guys will move to AA Richmond Flying Squirrels (in Virginia) and then AAA Fresno the following year. So you might not have a chance to see some of the amazing talent for a few years.
