Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Yesterday, my father and eight other cancer survivors were honoured at the San Francisco Giants' annual 'Strike Out Cancer' event.

Before the game started, our family was invited to join the other honourees for brunch complete with hot dogs, potato salad, and plenty of peanuts and Cracker Jacks! Here my dad is being asked to autograph someone's bat. He felt like a celebrity!

We also got to meet some ball players, including the legendary Will Clark and current hottie Sergio Romo. We make a nice couple, don'tcha think?

Once on the field, each honouree was announced and a short interview was played on the 'giant' screen. It's impossible to tell from this photo, but that's my dad out there on 2nd base.

Overall, we had a lot of fun and were happy the Giants won against the Milwaukee Brewers 2 to 1. Thanks to the team and Genentech for their generous donations and for making the day special for all of us. :)


  1. Great smiles! Thanks for sharing your Father's special day. If he is a cancer survivor, he deserves a special time and honors.
    Enjoy your evening.
