A Fan's Journal 2010, 2012, 2014
by Joseph Sutton
After the Giants moved from New York to San Francisco in 1958, it took them 53 years to win their first World Series in 2010. Incredible. Their next title came in 2012. Miraculous. Then, in 2014, they became world champions again. Magical. Drawn from his personal journal, Joseph Sutton has combined all three of the Giants' World Series seasons into this one book. His unique observations will bring back a flood of memories for Giants fans, both young and old, on how the Giants, underdogs each year, reached the pinnacle of the baseball world three times in five years.
What makes this book truly distinct is that it's interwoven with the story of how baseball has influenced Sutton's relationship with his son Ray, from the time Ray was a Little Leaguer through high school. It shows how the game of baseball, ever since its very beginnings, has cemented relationships between fathers and sons, and some daughters, too.
"Joseph Sutton's San Francisco Giants: A Fan's Journal is a terrific chronicle of the 2010, 2012 and 2014 Giants championship seasons. The hook of it is not only a succinct journal of San Francisco's three World Series titles, but it's also intermixed with Sutton's experiences coaching his son's Little League teams over twenty years ago."
