The San Francisco Giants are one of baseball's most popular teams right now. Their rabid fan base is at an all-time high. Everywhere the Giants go, you see orange in the stands. Whether these are bandwagon fans or legitimate die-hard is irrelevant. All I know is that the Giants are enjoying a degree of popularity and it shows.
With this in mind, I compiled a handful of recent commercials that showcase the colorful Giants players of the future and the recent past. With characters such as The Beard, The Freak and The Panda, Giants players have plenty to offer in front of the camera.
What happens when you have to conserve Barry Bonds' energy for the plate?
Marquis Grissom and Jose Cruz have to play a two-man outfield that's what!

But is he as loved by umpires? Or are umpires just attracted to any catcher in the office?
When you think you've got what it takes to swing the bat, stand in front of primed and seasoned rawhide pitches thrown by Tim Lincecum and Brian Wilson. If you survive, we'll talk.

How magic was the 2010 season?
How magic is this commercial?
Brian: Is that your girlfriend?
Fan Dude: Yeah.
