Tales of the 2010 San Francisco Giants

Baggarly, Andrew

Read about the colorful characters (lovingly labeled the Dirty Dozen by manager Bruce Bochy) who became stars during San Francisco's crazy ride to the top, including Aubrey Huff and his now-legendary Rally Thong; clean-cut rookie extraordinaire Buster Posey; and laissez faire Tim Lincecum, whose laid-back personality is a perfect fit for the City by the Bay. Behind every madcap misadventure there was also an unquenchable drive to succeed and prove the naysayers wrong.
