In 1973, Mario Alioto got lucky. After his older brother moved on from being a bat boy for the San Francisco Giants at Candlestick Park, it was Mario's turn.
In this episode, Mario, now VP of Business Operations for the Giants, shares stories from his days with the team before they moved north to their current home. He talks about being a bat boy for visiting teams, managing the visiting clubhouse, the 1989 earthquake, and his role in the current bobblehead craze.
Check back Thursday for Mario's stories from the AT&T Park (aka PacBell Park and SBC Park) days.
We recorded this podcast at AT&T Park in April 2018.
