Hunter Pence reflects on his time with the Giants in a heartfelt essay

During his last game at AT&T Park, Hunter Pence exited in a way only he could—on a motorized scooter. It was the appearance of a young soul who wanted to soak up as much of the atmosphere as possible.

At the time, it was presumed that was going to be his last game as a member of the Giants. But nobody knew for sure, including Pence.

With the three-time All-Star recently agreeing to a minor league deal with the Rangers, he reflected on the seven seasons he spent as a member of the Giants in a touching essay entitled “Gr8ful” to The Player’s Tribune.

A player’s farewell- we’ll always have 2014.
