A fan favorite for several years in San Francisco, third baseman Pablo Sandoval is back with the organization, making his debut with the Class A San Jose Giants on Saturday night.
His appearance caught plenty of eyes – and how could it not? He, and the rest of the team, played the evening’s 5-4 loss in Christmas-themed jerseys.
The gift to fans in San Jose came as part of San Jose’s “Christmas in July” weekend promotion.
Playing as designated hitter, Sandoval went 1 for 4 in the game with a walk and an RBI groundout. He’s expected to join the River Cats on Tuesday.
