Sultans of swing
Outfielders were fighting some wicked shadows Sunday thanks to the 5:05 p.m. ESPN start time. If you want to get a first-hand taste of just how rough that early-evening sun at AT&T Park is for catching fly balls, sign up for the "Swing Like a Giant" event slated for after Thursday’s day game.
Participants will take eight swings from home plate off a pitching machine, with prizes for the five farthest hits, but those who aren’t batting will get to shag flies in the outfield. Bring your flipdown shades.
Proceeds benefit the Giants Community Fund.
