  • New York Giants Preservation Society Meeting with Andrew Baggarly-June 8, 2015

    Our 3rd meeting of the year (Trophy Tour, Jaime Rupert) will take place June 8 with Andrew Baggarly journalist, Jeopardy Champion, and author, who has covered the Giants since 2004. Andy has graciously agreed to speak to our group as the Giants come to town to play the Mets, June 9-11. Andy is the very talented Giants beat writer for the San Jose Mercury News. His twitter account is the 1st place Giants fans should go to when they need the latest on the Orange and Black. He is in my opinion, the best of all the Giants reporters and writers. Simply, he tells it like it is. Here is the link; this is must for serious Giants fans. along with his website
    Andy is the author of A Band of Misfits: Tales of the 2010 San Francisco Giants (2011) and Giant Splash: Bondsian Blasts, World Series Parades, and Other Thrilling Moments by the Bay (2015) Here is a blurb from Amazon about his newest book:
    “Celebrate the golden age of San Francisco Giants baseball with Giant Splash, a firsthand account by Giants beat reporter and best-selling author Andrew Baggarly. Since the team moved to the shores of McCovey Cove in 2000, Giants fans have been thrilled by iconic players, historic moments, and heroic performances—not to mention three World Series championships. Giant Splash takes readers onto the field and inside the clubhouse for every unforgettable moment: Barry Bonds’ record-setting home runs, Tim Lincecum’s no-hitter, Matt Cain’s perfect game, Travis Ishikawa’s walk-off pennant winner, and many more.”
    This will be a can’t miss event, especially for the majority of us who have remained Giants fans despite the fact that they moved 3,000 miles away, 57 years ago!!
    I expect this to be a packed house at the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse
    RSVP as soon as possible and please indicate if you would like to purchase either book, or one or the other. Andy will be happy to sign your book. I met Andy at CitiField and he was nice enough to sign my Band of Misfits book, which is a fabulous read!!
    Looking forward to seeing many of you on the 8th, we are looking at 6, or 6:30 starting time. I will advise when I’m sure.-Gary
