It was a beautiful way to end the weekend, spending the day at Scottsdale Stadium watching the Giants. It was even a better day to be a baseball fan because some elite talent was showcased out on the field from both the Giants and Reds.
Buster Posey made his return to the squat after a devastating injury sidelined him early last May that dearly hurt the Giants offense the rest of the season. Posey went 0-1 at the plate but just seeing him again is enough joy for me.
Freddy Sanchez also debut for the first time this season, hitting in the DH spot.
The Reds top talent and young phenom, Aroldis Chapman, took to the hill and was nothing but spectacular as he put away all six batters he faced.
Chapman hit 100 mph on the radar gun while facing Pablo Sandoval and averaged about 96 mph for the day.
