San Francisco Giants History: Buster Posey makes 2010 season debut; top 5 career moments
4. Buster Posey’s First Major League Home Run
What better moment in your career than your first major league home run?
Posey hit that first home run on Jun. 9, 2010 in Cincinnati. Like his 2012 NLDS grand slam, it was hit into the upper deck at Great American Ballpark.
Posey now has 123 career home runs. Whether or not he gets to 300 before his career is over, that remains to be seen.
AT&T Park isn’t exactly the easiest place to hit one out
5. 2012 World Series Home Run
One of the few things that could top your first big-league home run is a home run in the World Series. And one to give you the lead at that.
The Giants were down 2-1 against Max Scherzer, and the powerhouse Detroit Tigers in the sixth inning of Game 4 of the 2012 World Series. Posey came up and yanked a two-run home run just barely fair down the left field line.
The Giants led 3-2. And apparently, that home run went off a fan’s face. They would eventually go on to win that game 4-3 in extra innings, sweeping the Tigers in the World Series.
