He’s been a staple at Giants’ home games for over 15 years. A fixture in his kayak, hanging out in the water over the right-field fence at Oracle Park is a man known as “McCovey Cove Dave.”

Dave Edlund has been seen swiping up home run balls in the Bay on your television sets for years with his headphones, donning a sweatshirt with his own name. 

He’s seen it all from his first game in the Cove on Oct. 5, 2001. That was a special year. Barry Bonds was sitting on 70 home runs, attempting to break the record for most home runs in a season. The slugger would finish with an MLB-record 73, although none of the last three were splash hits.

Edlund got his own Bonds ball, but in a unique way. And just wait until you hear his percentages of scoops on balls that land in McCovey Cove.
