Pence: 'I'm very grateful to be back; it's so fun to play here'
Odds are how's it feel to have an all season as a World Series champion. It's pretty surreal to be honest. Still tough to believe that and it's been a dream a lifelong dream and to have it come true the way it did with the team we were on. I could be more grateful as all those wonderful. Well chorus congratulations are in order you decided new one year deal with the Giants any doubt in your mind -- that you're going to be back next year. No I didn't doubt it I'm very grateful to be back it's a fun. Not a fun place to play really great city and I really great team obviously. Last here. The memories you know you can't you can't replace them I can't explain them. Oh it was a great great run that you know the second half that I was apart of and look forward to another challenge another year. You talk about the memories everybody's -- remember your fiery oration. To fire up this team when things looked lost for the Giants. Looking back on that whole thing now does it DDD you would deal wonder where out where that came from. A little bit you know a little bit but I hope they remember you know the way we played as a team out there remember. You know how all the great performances although the the pitchers -- enough that the big hits still little guys. You know I've felt like so many people contributed and every one of the series in. You know like those little things that I just think about it'll hit me randomly over the offseason like walking areas you know come an -- Late in the game and -- evidence of future runs or -- love Gregor Blanco tripled on -- or Crawford or. -- just have hope once it felt like the whole team every little guy every every one of us it took all of us and now hopefully that's what they remember. You know some guys did some impressions that you. In day pregame dugout. Jeremy at -- all there Z go Markus Kuhn wrote the name of you who do the best one. You know than they did that sort clip and it was very good how they put that together. They showed me everyone's like full speeds. And I mean I couldn't I couldn't pick just one it was so funny. Take here you know my teammates trying to imitate my speech -- games. Who was really really good I mean that felt obviously the guys he can't go wrong there. It was pretty cool just to see to see them. Put on Hunter Pence speeds say yes. Well the very -- par we talked about when you put these chicken on the grill. You gotta do -- Michael winner did he with the is that is that close to something that you said it in the pregame dugout. I think they cut that -- that in context you gotta you gotta see like his old speeds. You know he was actually talking about at that time you know conversation between him the shots and like so. Then they cut that -- we don't really know what he's done -- when you hear his speech it all makes sense for guys that I answer well. You know last year you batted 253 I think 290 your time these -- do you feel like this year coming back full season with the judge yeah a little bit of Bob something to prove. Let's -- -- better match. Absolutely absolutely well tell me this on game seven of the NLCS. You have a hit the bases loaded. You hit a ball for a base hit that hits your bat three times does the bad breaks that Selig that part take us back to that moment. You know I really haven't I didn't even know I had it three times you know just tell you broke my bat. And I kind of stayed through it and you know sometimes the ball -- -- stays on your battle long time. But really -- at the strangest thing was like the reaction of the infielders they have never seen an infielder turned the wrong way so apparently that's never happened that. Fortunately it worked out good for us. -- gotta drive he had -- you make your offseason home in Houston but he had chances spending time around the Bay Area in the offseason what kind of reaction you got from the fence. How incredible incredible not enough time always had more time to be out here. You know but the few days I got to stay after after no World Series was done. I mean it's it's been remarkable and you know this that the fans here are just so enthusiastic. They made itself on the parade. Can't explain it like you said summary of those memories you know our our. You know priceless to me and I always have them in the way the fans treated us and and how -- I remember the clip they show me after we won and we are in Detroit and it is so the fans like you know just absolutely you know elated like -- haven't. Huge party going on so thousand early special last hopefully bring some joy. We know this is known as a pitcher's park AT&T park and obviously and you've been a slugger your whole career I mean is it is. I beleaguered coming up on your free agent year after this year I mean to. To what degree does the park play a role and where you want later had a long term. You know I actually love this -- I think it's one of them know most beautiful Clarkson and Major League Baseball one of the best rounds ever been to. It's so fun to play here it's an atmosphere -- a concert like atmosphere the fans have a lot of fun I enjoy every damn grateful to come out play in this park him. You know. I like to challenge you know big part it took it you feel like if you catch on when your power guy it's gonna go it's a matter just accident and -- You know so to me ultimately -- -- my goal list it as to take every game and and focus so whatever is needed at the moment to help win that game. You know you do -- 162 times. Into the day you know the numbers will take care of themselves and you know the park in the stadium and all that in arms can enjoy you know how fun it is to play here and that's what I look forward to. And last thing of course now we're here. Debuting. This new video game and of course all players and all sports they always have something to say about how they're portrayed. In this video game you've had a chance to probably play around with it did did they capture the essence of Hunter Pence in this game. You know my first at bat. I hit a homer with myself so they kept me pretty good right on the job next. While much is second at bat them. Two RBI double. I was hot but most of two since then but the other first who bats right on.
