Romo recounts favorite Giants memories at Oracle Park

Sergio Romo, Giants

A slow offseason has nearly everyone feeling nostalgic over baseball, including Sergio Romo.

As part of a common social media trend this winter, the former Giant took to Twitter to share some of his favorite memories at Oracle Park.

Safe to say, the three-time World Series champion had no shortage of fond times.

Romo's penned memories share a common sentiment with Giants fans. It's hard to imagine anyone in San Francisco soon forgetting the image of 2012 NLCS MVP Marco Scutaro standing in the rain with his arms outstretched and face craning towards the rain as the Giants clinched the National League pennant.


Fast forward two years later and Giants fans would have another pennant to rejoice, this one at the hands of Travis Ishikawa, who lit up San Francisco with his series-clinching, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 5 against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Of course, there was no shortage of tremendous pitching accolades during Romo's tenure either.

The first belongs to Jonathan Sanchez, who fired the Giants first no-hitter in 33 years blanking the San Diego Padres 8-0 in 2009. Most notably, Sanchez's father, Sigfredo, was in attendance to see his son start for the first time.

Three years later, Matt Cain made history against the Houston Astros, throwing the first perfect game in franchise history -- and the 22nd in MLB history.

Tim Lincecum completed the trifecta in 2014 when he no-hit the Padres (again), becoming the second pitcher in baseball to no-hit the same opponent twice.

Additionally, Romo recounted fellow reliever Yusmeiro Petit's accolade in 2014. The right-hander set the record for consecutive batters retired at 46, a record that still stands today.

Finally, the former closer reflected on his World Series ring presentations -- all three of them.

Romo's former club surely appreciated the opportunity to reminisce, responding back to the closer with his signature catch phrase.

With spring training not slated to open for at least six more weeks, Giants fans will have to settle for nostalgia to get their baseball fix for the time being, while hoping that the 2021 season brings even more to celebrate at Oracle Park.
