The San Francisco Giants‘ lone All-Star selection, Joc Pederson, is a well-deserving representative of the orange and black. He is the first Giants outfielder to win the fan vote since Melky Cabrera way back in 2012. You remember 2012, right? That was when the Giants had only one World Series victory in San Francisco.

Rogers Hornsby has one of the most intriguing statistical anomalies in the game of baseball. Although he hit over .400 three times, he does not have 3,000 hits as he has 2,930.

We must tip our cap to the ever-present late-innings seagulls at Oracle Park.  These gregarious feathered friends can be found whether it is a day or night game.
