Talk about going out with a bang.
As Giants manager Bruce Bochy prepared for his final team flight back to San Francisco on Sunday after his team's 4-1 win over the Atlanta Braves, his squad paid tribute with commemorative t-shirts, hats, and Bochy’s No. 15 plastered on the outside of the chartered plane in sticker form.
Just before the team plane prepared to depart the Atlanta airport, the Giants arranged for a ceremonial salute fitting for a three-time champion and winner of over 2,000 games as a manager.
The Giants will close out the 2019 season with six home games in what will be a week-long recognition of one of the franchise’s most successful managers.
Maybe Bochy can use that time in the air to enjoy some of the many gifts he received from opposing teams during his final season.
