Giants’ Home Opener


Brent CannonI am excited for work Monday morning. Yes – that’s right -excited for work on a Monday morning. That’s because Monday is the Giants’ home opener and we will do a live broadcast from AT&T Park. Baseball. AT&T Park. A live show. What could be better? Not since my sportscasting days have I been able to do a show like this.

Besides the news of the day, we’ll take a behind the scenes tour of the club house – we’ll talk with people from the Giants. We hope to have a player live on the field from batting practice to talk about the new season and the new era without Barry Bonds. Somebody from the front office will join us as well to talk about the team, and what it takes to get things ready for the fans on the home opener.

NBC11 sportscaster Daryl Hawks will join me as well, and we have a special story about low income Bay Area students who get jobs working the concession stands. Not only do they get a cool job at the ballpark, but the program also helps them prepare for college.

We’ll talk about the food! From garlic fries to beer – Gordon Biersch’s co-founder Dan Gordon will be there to preview the taste of this year’s all American pastime.

So, get excited about Monday and join Laura and me on the Bay Area Today at 11AM on NBC11. And don’t forget you can now watch many of the Gaints’ games this year on NBC11… In fact, we’ll be broadcasting Tuesday night’s game against the Padres. Opening pitch is at 7:15PM.

See ya Monday morning.
