Birthdays at the ballpark are always fun. What’s even more fun is meeting your favorite player on your birthday.
That’s exactly what a Giants fan named Mary was able to do in San Francisco on Saturday night. What makes it even more noteworthy, though? It was Mary’s 101st birthday.
With a sign that read “I want to meet Brandon Crawford for my 101st birthday,” and some sweet Giants pants, Mary’s wish was granted as she was able to indeed meet the Giants shortstop. The adorable moment was captured by Brandon’s wife, Jalynne, who shared the photos on Twitter.
Crawford must have caught some of her birthday magic and spread it to the clubhouse, as he went 1-for-3 with an RBI, two walks and two runs scored in the Giants’ 9-3 win over the Nationals, which was probably just the icing on the cake for Mary.
