Talk: A Band of Misfits

Andrew Baggarly spoke to Googlers in Mountain View on May 23, 2011 about his book "A Band of Misfits: Tales of the 2010 San Francisco Giants." He is introduced by Ryan Terribilini. The 2010 San Francisco Giants were the most unlikely World Series champions of all time. Sure, they had some quality pitchers, but the Giants roster consisted of a rag-tag group of castoffs, oddballs, rookies, and old-timers who seemed a lot more entertaining off the field than on it. After 53 years of futility, San Francisco was hungry for a baseball championship...but the 2010 Giants?

Behind every madcap misadventure there was also an unquenchable drive to succeed and prove the naysayers wrong. Too young, too old, not good enough? This team never bought into those excuses. Every baseball fan will love Baggarly's inside stories of The Misfits run to the title."
