Thursday BP: Happy Birthday Darin Ruf!

Good morning, baseball fans!

We here at McCovey Chronicles would like to wish Darin Ruf of the San Francsico Giants a very happy birthday! Ruf, in his third season with the Giants, turns 36 today.

In the recent spirit of finding things to be happy and/or nostalgic about in the morning so we’re not always bummed, let’s take a look back at my personal favorite Darin Ruf moment.

I’ll set the scene.

It was Opening Day for the Giants, with the visiting Miami Marlins in the house. The Giants were up 3-0, with Brandon Belt and Ruf knocking in the first two runs in the third and Joey Bart hitting a home run in the fifth.
