San Francisco Giants’ All Stars

all star giants - picture from sfgiants.comSan Francisco Giants. This year’s All Star Game takes place on July 12 at Chase Field, Phoenix, Arizona, where as a side note, there is also a Gaelic Football Club.

Anyway, this year’s representatives from the Giants are all from the pitching staff and feature Brian Wilson (the ultimate sports star), Matt Cain (who I’m thrilled for, he’s amazing pitcher), Tim Lincecum (who is five years in the big leagues and an all star four times) and Ryan Vogelsong who will be at the game for the first time. He was brought into the Giant’s rotation went Barry Zito got injured.

He was originally a Giant between 2000-2001 and recently played in Japan.  It probably helps that Giants’  manager Bruce Bochy is the NL Team Manager for the All Star Game. YAY!
