[cheers and applause] . i said are you ready? [cheers and applause] it is my pleasure now to introduce two members of the best broadcast team in baseball. please welcome dave fleming and john miller. >> now, all along the parade route this song that echoed through the ballpark and my broadcast partner on the radio dave fleming somehow has involuntary reaction to it. a lot of people think he's so into it. whenever the music comes on he can't contain himself. it's not even that and i'm going to show you it right now. >> i'm not sure where you're going with this john. >> it's uncontrollable for him
so he's not really into even the thought of it but i want to show you what really happens. we seen him do it so many times in the ballpark. along the parade route they were pleading for him to do it. >> i don't know. >> so really -- now keep your eyes on dave. watch what happens when i say "oh gangom style". >> john, can do it with me too. >> okay, okay. i can't help it. [cheers and applause] now, another thing that
occurred to us was that giants winning on the road the way they did, the one thing the giants' players really missed was that ability to share it with all of you, and we thought because they're right in the back here we could give them that feeling that if they had won it right here at at&t park. it's the last inning and sergio romo needs one more strike to win the series and dave at microphone. >> ready. cabrel the hitter. here is the two-two pitch. strike three called and the giants win the world series. [cheers and applause] we missed that cheer. pretty
cool. >> good work. all right so let's meet them. first of all the coaches of the san francisco giants. tim flan ree. >> ron roatus. >> the hitting instructor and royalty from cure sal. >> giants first base coach roberto kelly. >> the great pitching coach of the best pitching staff on the planet, dave righetti. >> and saibian likes to call him pitching coach number two, mark gardener. >> coach and the catching
instructor bill hayes. >> and giants hitting instructor joe lefebvre. >> there are only 23 managers in the long history of major league baseball who have won at least two world series. he's the first national manager to win two just like that since the mid-70's. ladies and gentlemen, the manager of the world champion giants, bruce bochy. [cheers and applause] >> that's right. bruce! okay.
now let's meet the players themselves. [cheers and applause] we need to give this guy a big round of applause. unfortunately he couldn't be here because of a family emergency but he had the winning run in game four. give it up for ryan theriot. he saved a perfect game with the greatest catch of the season and he kept doing it all through the post season, left fielder number seven. gregor blank koa. >> he did it with his bat and with his words. the guy sort of got the giants going before game through with cincinnati, hunter pens.
[cheers and applause] >> in game four in detroit he knocked in the first run with a triple off the right field wall, first base man number nine. brandon belt. >> a norn california native. he joined the giants later in the year and part of the home stretch. xavier nadel. >> this guy played andlet better he got. he could play almost anywhere and murdered left hand pitching. number 13. joaquin
>> we won't forget this one. awb ree huff. >> he was the clinching game and against the cardinals. ladies and gentlemen a perfect game number 18 matt cain. [cheers and applause] >> all right. who was the better trade acquisition than this guy. he turned into a hero for the giants in the post season, the mvp of the championship series, the winning hit in the world series, marco scutaro. [cheers and applause]
>> giants back up catcher number 22 eli whiteside. >> well, i have a feeling he's going to have a few more awards to pick up in the next couple of weeks. he's already won several giants post season catcher all star buster posey. [cheers and applause] >> and buster's back up 22 years old. did a great job. number 29 hector sanchez.
[cheers and applause] >> well, there have only been a couple of pitchers in the history of the game and one is kristi mather son and started with one run or fewer. he pitched so well all the way down the stretch for the giants. ryan vogelsong. [cheers and applause] >> this guy was an important man adding depth to the bull pen during the long season. please welcome number 34 right handers clay hensley. >> well, this next guy grew up a
giants fan. i think he dreamed of being here one day. how many great plays about he make for the giants? short stop brandon crawford. [cheers and applause] >> we missed him this year, but in the restaurant he was there. hard to miss him. number 38. brian wilson. [cheers and applause] >> what a performance here in san francisco in game two of the world series. he's still only 23 years old. giants starting pitcher madison bumgarner.
[cheers and applause] >> i don't think we will ever forget the eighth inning in game against detroit and strike out the best hitters they had to over. germ -- jeremy a felt. >> another great guy santiago castilla. >> wherever this guys goes championships seem to follow, a key man in the bull pen against this here, number 49, javier lopez. [cheers and applause] >> another one of brian
saibian's great season moves picking up this left hander. jose mijares. >> literally he was unhittable in the world series and the post season. sergio romo. [cheers and applause] >> hard to describe what a job this next guy did. he became the giants' ultimate weapons in the playoffs in the world series, tim
lincecum. [cheers and applause] >> and adding to the bull pen veteran guillermo mota. >> a pitcher who made the debut with the giants this year jean machi. >> this guy was acquired from the yankees at the end of spring training and he was so good and forced himself on to the roster, george cantos. >> okay. this guy needs a big, big applause for what he did against the
