SF Giants Summer Camp 7/11 – Tweet Journal

Join Sam as he covers the SF Giants Summer Camp Training LIVE from Oracle Park. Each day’s post updates live in real-time and is meant to be something between a tweet and an article – the brevity and timeliness of a tweet combined with the analysis and organization of a blog post.

Orange & Black Uniforms

  • For baseball fans, this might not be a big deal, but for us in the press box, this is HUGE. Unless you’re familiar with every player’s gait, it’s been next to impossible to identify players with just their standard-issue dri-fit on.
  • Also, keep in mind we’re only allowed to be ~100+ feet away from the field at the closest. The addition of uniforms will make it substantially easier for us to recognize noteworthy players
