As the final minutes of a rainy NLCS Game 7 passed and the Giants were nearing advancing to the 2012 World Series, second baseman Marco Scutaro spread out his arms, looked up to the rainy sky and soaked up the moment. From that moment on, #Scutaroing was born.
Giants fans throughout the world took a liking to this iconic moment, expressing it through various social media channels such as Intagram, Facebook, and Twitter. One fan in particular tweeted her idea of a Marco Scutaro "RainGlobe", and with the help of the #sfgiants fan base and social media, it was added to the 2013 Special Events calendar! Fans who purchase a Social Media Night Special Event ticket will receive a ticket to the Friday evening game against the Cubs, a collector's-edition Marco Scutaro RainGlobe, highlighting this iconic moment in Giants history, as well as admission to the Social Media Night pre-game party from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in Seals Plaza!
Already have a ticket to the July 26 game, but missed out on the Social Media Night Special Event ticket? Don't despair... as a special exception for this event, the Giants are offering "event only" tickets, good for admission to the Social Media Night pre-game party prior to the start of the game, as well as the Marco Scutaro RainGlobe! An important note is that this "Event Only" ticket is NOT a game ticket, and will not get you access to AT&T Park for the 7:15pm game vs. the Chicago Cubs, so make sure you already have arrangements for your game ticket if you purchase this option! Must have a valid game ticket to redeem special event voucher.
Stay tuned to learn how you can participate in Social Media Night and win cool prizes! Details to be announced here soon.
