Hunter Pence famously delivered the extemporaneous speech of a lifetime to his teammates, as they prepared to face the Reds in the Game 3 elimination match. His passion earned him the role of Giants pre-game orator and Chief Inspiration Officer.

“As I watched manager Bruce Bochy and his staff spill onto the field, I imagined what was happening in San Francisco. All of us who traveled to Detroit – including every player and coach – knew Coit Tower, the Ferry Building and City Hall were awash in orange light. We knew that fans had filled every inch of Civic Center Plaza to watch Game 4. We knew that throughout the Bay Area, living rooms and pubs were packed with people wearing Panda and Baby Giraffe hats, fake beards and “Vogelstrong” bracelets.
We also knew that no matter how talented the players or how ingenious the manager, no team can win a World Series Championship – much less two in three years – without a little magic.
Our magic is you.
I wish you could hear how our players talk about you, not just with each other but also with players on other teams. Brandon Belt says base runners on first base tell him they’ve never heard a park as loud as AT&T. Hunter Pence says that Giants fans are “the ultimate motivator.” Matt Cain calls you their 10th player.
So believe me when I tell you this: Our players carried all of you with them onto the field at Comerica Park. And they were unbeatable.”
Baer. He’s essential.
