10 years later: J.T. Snow hoists Darren Baker one more time at Giants reunion (Big League Stew)
One of the enduring images in baseball over the past 10 years has been that of J.T. Snow grabbing and pulling 3-year-old Darren Baker out of harm's way after the San Francisco Giants batboy — and son of their manager at the time, Dusty Baker — wandered too close to the action during Game 5 of the 2002 World Series.
Well, both were on hand at AT&T Park on Sunday afternoon as the Giants celebrated the 10-year anniversary of that team that fell one victory short of a world championship — Dusty was there, too, managing his Cincinnati Reds — and during the pregame ceremonies, Snow and the now 13-year-old Baker decided to reenact their famous moment after the latter threw out the game's ceremonial first pitch.
Needless to say, it was met with overwhelming enthusiasm from the sellout crowd of 42,039.
