For the last 30 years, the San Francisco Giants have been hosting a program called ‘Junior Giants’. The program gives children the opportunity to learn about baseball from some of their biggest role models.

Due to COVID-19, the baseball season has been cancelled meaning the Junior Giants would be cancelled as well. In order to bring inspiration to the community, the team has decided to host this program virtually! The program will be four weeks long and children will be able to virtually connect with players from the San Francisco Giants.

The team’s manager, Kapler, said that he hopes to use this platform to bring much needed inspiration as well as spread the messages such as the importance of education and highlight bullying prevention. He feels that this experience will help players prepare for the return of the baseball season.

We’re definitely excited to see this program come to life and hopeful it will bring happiness to Bay Area children!
