Meet Alex, therapy bunny spotted at Giants game Thursday night

Giants

There was an adorable and unique sighting at the Giants game Thursday night as the team hosted the Miami Marlins at Oracle Park: a bunny.

Yep.

But there’s an even better story behind it thanks to the Associated Press’ Janie McCauley.

Everyone, meet Alex, a four-and-a-half-month-old therapy bunny:

Kei Kato, who was at the game with her friend Josh, got Alex when he was just one month old and he’s been everywhere so far. A NASCAR event, he’s been to Tahoe doing some snow tubing, kayaking -- he’s done it all. Alex also has been supporting Kato after she lost her restaurant due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

This was his first time at a Giants game.

Kato told McCauley he gave out 400 eggs on Easter and he’s just the cutest thing.

Right-handed reliever Gregory Santos made his big-league debut Thursday night in the top of the sixth inning after he was recalled earlier in the day. He struck Magneuris Sierra and a hot Jazz Chisolm, topping out at 98.9 mph. And he was able to do that in front of Alex the bunny.

Not something you see every day at the ballpark, but Alex has already made his way around social media and has begun his trip to becoming viral. Not only because of the randomness, but his size. That’s quite a rabbit. He appears to be enjoying himself. 

 

Only in San Francisco.
