SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — San Francisco Giants legend Madison Bumgarner reported to camp in Scottsdale on Wednesday, but he’s a few exits north of his old home.
Instead of arriving to Scottsdale Stadium as he’s done throughout his career, Bumgarner showed up at Salt River Fields and acknowledged things feel different.
“The free agency process was pretty interesting to say the least but everything worked out and the stars aligned,” Bumgarner said. “It’s a place I enjoy, I’ve always liked Arizona, the Scottsdale area and the Phoenix area. The team, I really like how they play the game.
