"As always, we are deeply grateful for your loyalty to the Giants ... "
The Giants season has come and gone and the year was sealed with a concluding note from team president and CEO Larry Baer. The letter was posted on the official Twitter account of the Giants and sent to season-ticket holders.

In the letter, Baer confirmed the changes happening at Oracle Park, which will move the bullpens to the outfield. He explained the change is in order to "make foul territory safer for players," as well as creating a more entertaining experience for fans.
More ballpark changes could be coming as well, he wrote in the letter.
Baer also wrote about the positives of the season, in which there were many despite a 77-85 record. President of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi added a bunch of new names to the mix along the way. Mike Yastrzemski was one of those moves and in addition to a historical series at Fenway Park, his .272/.334/.518 line with 21 home runs and 55 RBI show he was a bright spot even during the dim times.
An exhilarating 19-6 run in July also was a spark during the season, promising contributions from Alex Dickerson, Mauricio Dubón, Logan Webb, Tyler Beede and Dereck Rodriguez should make fans excited for the future.

Baer concluded his note by looking ahead to the 2020 season, one that will be the Giants' first since 2006 without Bruce Bochy at the helm.
