Pablo Sandoval

Pablo Sandoval is a player who has carved out a reputation as a clutch postseason performer. Known as the “Kung Fu Panda”, Sandoval began his career with the San Francisco Giants in 2008.

Sandoval’s crowning achievement came during the 2012 World Series when he was named the World Series MVP. In Game 1, he hit three home runs, joining Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, and Albert Pujols as the only players to do so in a single World Series game.

In 2014, Sandoval signed with the Boston Red Sox but struggled with injuries and performance, and was eventually released in 2017. He then returned to the Giants and played mostly as a utility player and pinch hitter.

Known for his power-hitting and steady glove at first base, Cepeda’s contributions were recognized with his induction into the Hall of Fame in 1999.

Ellis Burks

Ellis Burks was an influential outfielder in Major League Baseball from 1987 to 2004. He had notable stints with the Boston Red Sox, Colorado Rockies, and Cleveland Indians.

With a blend of power and speed, Burks hit over 350 home runs and stole more than 180 bases in his career, maintaining a solid .291 batting average. His career highlights include two All-Star selections (Red Sox, Rockies) and a Gold Glove (Red Sox), testifying to his prowess both in the field and at the plate.

Adam Duvall was selected by the San Francisco Giants in the 11th round of the 2010 MLB Draft. He made his major league debut with the Giants in 2014 but was later traded to the Cincinnati Reds, where he became a regular starter.

Duvall’s 2016 season was a standout, as he hit 33 home runs and drove in 103 runs, earning his first All-Star selection. His power-hitting has continued to be a signature trait for Duvall, hitting 30 or more home runs in multiple seasons over his career.

After his time in Cincinnati, Duvall played for the Atlanta Braves, Miami Marlins and Boston Red Sox.
