Happy Valentine’s Day, San Francisco Giants fans! The long wait is finally over. While many players have been at Spring Training for a few days, today is the day that pitchers and catchers officially report for duty. Sure, it sucks for their spouses and girlfriends, but I personally can’t think of a better Valentine’s Day gift for the rest of us.
Here’s what you need to get through the day (we’ll update this post with tidbits as the day goes on):
At 9:00 am there will be a livestream from Scottsdale Stadium. We’ll post up the link, and it looks like we’ll be able to embed it as well.
The team will be giving out signed Valentine’s on Twitter today, beginning at 8:00 am. Head over to their Twitter account and make sure you’re following them! (https://twitter.com/SFGiants)
