Giants Bringing In 8-Year Team Veteran In "Coaching And Mentoring" Role

You love to see it.

San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler said this past weekend that Hunter Pence will be in camp this spring in a coaching and mentoring role.

Pence announced his retirement from the MLB following the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, after a great 14-year career. He'll now be with the Giants this spring to help with the next generation of young talent.

Over his career, Pence spent almost a decade with the Giants (8 years), five seasons with the Houston Astros, two seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies and one with the Texas Rangers.

During his accomplished career, Pence was a 2-time All-Star (2009, 2011), a Silver Slugger winner (2014), won the World Series Championships with the Giants in 2012 and 2014 and finished in the top 20 in National League MVP voting three times.

He finished with a career .279/.334/.461 triple-slash line, with 244 home runs, 942 RBIs, 120 stolen bases and 891 runs scored over 1,707 games played. Photo Credit: Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports
