SF Giants Summer Camp 7/16 – 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.

Scoreboards Also Need Spring Training

  • In previous Summer Camp days, the scoreboard has been solely blank outside the raw lineups. Today the Giants will be rolling out an extended use of the scoreboard as they prepare for Opening Day in a week.
  • PLAYLIST: Music continues to be played sparingly at Oracle, but we did get a chance to hear “Life Is Good” by Future Feat. Drake
