Giants CEO Larry Baer and the team president have always been in the courting room when signing a new marquee free agent. The SF Giants CEO is familiar with deals of up to trillions though he understands some of the best Giants ever had been dependent on homegrown players.
In a press statement, SF Giants CEO revolved around the theme of coaching more local players and hinted that Giants’ next off-season will mainly be determined by players who have not been in the big league yet. Giants need to restructure themselves well to return to their former glory.
Games, just like any other sector, have been negatively affected by Covid-19. Giants had hoped to have fans cheering Giants during 2020 games. However, due to the San Francisco city health restrictions, fans had to watch the games live from their homes. According to Larry Baer, only about a quarter of those who had bought tickets asked for a refund. Team officials were amazed that the majority requested to have their tickets rolled over to future games. The Giants CEO shares that they are hopeful that fans will be able to attend games in Oracle Park by this summer.
Giants are hoping to provide fans with a more competitive product, and the owner is pleased with the management of Harris and Zaidi. So far, the farm system has proven to be the best in recruiting new players. This season, fans can expect to see top players such as Heliot Ramos and Joey Bart in the 2021 season. SF Giants CEO shares that these players will have to do their best because as they were reconstructing, their division changed, with the Dodgers taking the championship crown. Taking the Diego Padres is a daunting challenge that the Giants will have to overcome.
