francisco, dignitaries, lumnaries, the hall of famers, the ownership group, the coaching and training staff. today is ground hog day. we have the right to claim baseball heaven. this is the mecca of baseball, san francisco california. i think people forgot this team won 94 games in the regular season in a division that is probably as under rated as any division in sports. beat two excellent teams to win the national league and go on to detroit and unfortunately with detroit with all due respect they didn't know what they were in for. [cheers and applause] you fans, this city, this organization, this team wants all of us, or tries to make all of us better men, better
people, better husbands, better friends. larry alluded to it the life lessons watching these guys perform everyday and we have a phrase for it "feeding the beast". this game is a rugged game and like life you need to put a lot into it and they became teammates and competed like nobody has seen. i am humbled to be part of this. i am so happy for all our family and friends and this is why we do this, and you folks will be etched in time and in history as one of the greatest teams not only in san francisco history but in baseball. [cheers and applause] . you earned it and you couldn't have done it without a hall of fame manager and like you guys great things happen to great people. that's what happened to this team. as good as baseball players they are
and as big as their accomplishments are they're great people and to call bruce bochy my friend or colleague or mentor, or somebody that i cherish our relationship so much that i can't explain. the one thing that we have here that no other organization has is everybody is on the same page. the ownership through the front office to the manager and the coaching staff and to the players. it flows up and down and it's all because of one man and how he's driven these guys together and bochy i can't say enough and you're getting your due and it is long over due. [cheers and applause] >> thank you. sit down. sit
down. thank you. thanks a lot brian. he's got me emotional now. first of all i wanted to let you know we does try to spare you the torture of 2010 by clinching this division a little bit earlier. now with the six elimination games we wanted to take the torture to another level, and these guys did a great job, but what makes this team so special really was their unselfish play, and they showed you that there's no heights you can't rise to when you have did it and without self interest. these guys did it. nobody came
in my office complaining or ask questions. they did whatever they could to help the team win and for them i thank all of them for buying into what we were trying to do and that is win this world series. [cheers and applause] in 2010 i think we characterized the club as a bunch of misfits that got together and got it done. well, if i had to put a tag line and hang it on this club it would be "never say die ". we had key players go down in the season never say die. we got down two-zero to the reds. never say die. we got down to st. louis. never say die. and that last game against detroit was the first time we got behind and they never say die and they ended up
winning the thing. [cheers and applause] now, we had something different to help us. in 2010 we had the rally gong. that game through for us but this here we have hunter pence's sermons and wherever you are thank you hunter. [cheers and applause] but as i was flying here after we beat detroit you have to realize that we're drinking from water -- from the well dug by others. there are so many people that did something here to contribute. the players, the coaches, myself we're in front the tv, but owners with their help. they have such a commitment to make the best experience for you fans and doing all they can, and to
extend the storied history of this franchise and -- as he said we're just not working together as gm manager. we're friends. i can't appreciate more how supportive he's been throughout of this with me. he's the genius that put this talent together to help get this done. to mayor lee, the city of san francisco, to the fans with your enthusiasm, your dedication, your enwaiverring support i thank you. i thank you for always being there. i thank you for never giving up. i thank you for showing up wherever we have been and thank you for making this one of the greatest moments of my life. thank you. [cheers and applause]
>> great job bochy. for somebody uses vice for a living it's never good to follow him. he's got the pipes. well, john, dwayne and mike are and are privileged to be part of this giants organization, to be the giants broadcasters but we're not the only four. there are two other members of the giants broadcast team who are critical to what we do and i think the best spanish language speaking broadcast in baseball and we want to become them to the podium now and been the voice for the giants for spanish for 15 years and his partner and please welcome tito friend.
[cheers and applause] >> wow, is this amazing or what? two times in three years. we can get used to this. right, tito? yep. anyway the only thing i can say is thank you to these 25 guys right here. for years i took math and they told me that five time five is 25 but i think five times five is one because they showed they can play 25 as one individual and that's how they got it done. [cheers and applause] now, i'm going to talk to my family -- [speaking spanish]
teammates that make me so happy and so proud. and now the young kids are taken over and two is not enough. we are going for a three-pete. [cheers and applause] >> tito, does not want to speak spanish. okay. no problem. >> i'm legal. >> now we're going to copy up a couple of players you're going to love. >> >> [speaking spanish] let's hear it for pablo sandoval . [cheers and applause]
pablo and marco. [cheers and applause] >> well, like many fans i'm also a fan of baseball. when we're not broadcasting we're traveling with the team. i also enjoy watching the teams on tv and listening to these guys. let's hear it for them. [cheers and applause] >> all right. how's everybody doing? good? are we ready to make some noise? seriously. i am serious. now, how does that home run call go? do you all remember? right. can you help me out? "he hits it high. he hits it deep, and he hits it -- very good. all right. let's do a couple of practice runs before we start eliminating some cities. all right. let's do a
pablo sandoval home run. pablo, give me a fake swing. he hit its high. he hits it deep and he hits it -- already. let's do one more. jeremy, are you ready? take a swing. and the pitch to affeldt. and the pitch -- swing and a miss. [laughter] >> hey, no, we will do it this time. do you trust me? come on, seriously. come on. all right. we're going to do it anyway. are you ready? and the pitch to affeldt. he hits it high. he hits it deep and he hits it -- >> audience: out of here. >> now, this has to be louder
because we're eliminating cities and teams. are you ready? they were supposed to be better than us after a bunch of trades. the los angeles dodgers are -- all right. the giants. they're down to two games of cincinnati. they win three straight. the reds are? >> audience: out of here! >> it has to be louder for the next two. are you ready? the giants go to st. louis and need to win there and back home. the st. louis cardinals are? >> audience: out of here! >> now for the big one. the mighty american league detroit tigers. you ready? the detroit tigers -- they are? audience: out of here! >> you never disappoint. here
is my partner mike. >> well, we have become an organization of expertation. there's expectation when you win a championship in 2010 and there is expectation when you get in that ballpark everyday and it's over flowing with your love and affection and there is purity in the formula that this organization goes about trying to meet those standards of excellence. it starts with the fans of historians that we call investors that kept us here in san francisco and goes to the front office comprised of men and women dedicating their lives to this team and goes to baseball operations and the fierce -- the fierce, the ferocious drive of brian saibian and his staff and the most
storied manager in san francisco giants history and his teachers and coaches and on to the training and medical staff, but inevitably it will always draw right on the backs of the men who have numbers on their backs. it's up to them to forge together a chemistry that allows them to believe in one another and this they did. this they did. and with sergio romo threw the last pitch in the 2012 season and he struck out miguel cabriara this group in one pitch they justified -- they justified that expectation, and now they stand before you today humbly stand before you today, and their accomplishment has
matched the verrossity of your adoring devotion. no other way to say it and to allow them to plant a plag and once again they can say it loudly "we are the giants. we are san francisco, and we are the world champions" . [cheers and applause] audience: let's go giants! let's go giants! let's go giants!
>> i would like now to introduce a couple of guys who have inspired all of us with their journeys in this game of baseball. please welcome two of the foundations to this championship team, ryan vogelsong and barry zito. [cheers and applause] >> how are you guys doing? [cheers and applause] me and vogy have a special relationship and we were talking in detroit after we clinchd and i told him how much he inspired him and respects him and me and
him have been through states of hell in this game and the lows have been very low but we're enjoying the highs of the highs right now and thanks to these guys right here and thanks to all you guys and it's a real honor to be up here and be part of helping this team this year. such a blessing so thank you very much. [cheers and applause] >> well, i have been told by older people on this team i need to keep this quick. there are two reasons we won and one we came together and as hunter said we played for the names on the front and not on the back and because of you fans. the way you brought us fort in the season and the post season. we went to the other cities and they weren't as loud as you and
quite frankly detroit's fans weren't even norly as loud as you and that's why we won and thank you very much and i told the team i was going to do this and we have a battle cry that nobody knows about and i'm going to break it out right now and you have to figure it out. it's as simple as this "you're going to jail now" . >> hard to beat. three more main stays to this championship team. matt cain, sergio romo and buster posey. [cheers and applause] >> well, now we have no chance
after that. this has been such an unbelievable ride this year. all these guys came together early in spring and really believed in each other. we had an eventful year and we have romo being romo behind us, but this has been truly amazing and without you guys we wouldn't be here and you guys are by far the best fans in baseball and we got to all right that all this season and it's unbelievable and this next guy needs no introduction but we will give him one anyway. mvp posey. [cheers and applause] >> thank you. audience: mvp! mvp! >> thank you for me look looking around and seeing all the excitement and happiness on
everyone's face you realize an accomplishment like this means more than just winning a game. this is about making memories with your family and friends to last a lifetime and i think we all know and believe that if you think something's achievable as long as you're willing to work hard enough for it and believe it can happen you can get it done and i just want to thank you guys for all your energy and excitement you bring to san francisco and for the giants day in and day out. you all are the best. thank you. [cheers and applause] >> well, -- audience: romo, romo. >> well, first off congratulations san francisco. we definitely couldn't have done it without you guys. i will venture to say -- there is one thing i noticed about my team
we are a great example of this city. look at the diversity of personalities, where we all come from, the different faces from different stories and we all have one goal in mine. we had one job in mine. we had one dream in mine and that is to be world series champions with this group and i am proud to say that. you guys the same thing. we couldn't have done it without you, the city of san francisco. like i said you guys better be proud. you need to be proud and i will tell you for dang sure we are all world series champions and wearing orange and black in san francisco. [cheers and applause]
>> all right. now i would like to introduce two more gentlemen. the first gentleman his first year with the giants and goes to the world series. the other gentleman arrived halfway through the season. coming up to speak now is angel pagan and hunter pens.

[cheers and applause] >> [inaudible] played with all heart. all right. all right everyone. everyone's been talking about the speech and a lot about the reverend which is a lot of empty smoke if you ask me. there is one simple thing that happened with this team that hasn't been talked about enough and it was sacrifice. when i went up and talked to these guys i asked them to sacrifice themselves and play for each other and you won't see that too often with this big of a stage and the playoffs with this great group of super stars. they sacrificed their ego and they played for you guys and this is what this celebration is about. it's about you. thank you guys. we are going to bring this together. we want you to join in what we do in the dug out. i want you teach you
about this and this is how we did it and i want you to lose your mind. >> ladies and gentlemen, this is how we get pumped up before we kill every team baby. >> every join with me. hands in the hair. we going to slow clap this and bring it up.
