Celebrating Giants' title with Pleasanton connection

Foothill grad/Giants SS Crawford meets with Pleasanton's congressman at White House event

San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford, a 2005 graduate of Foothill High, met with Pleasanton's Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin) last week during the White House celebration honoring the Giants' 2014 World Series victory.

San Francisco beat the Kansas City Royals in seven games last October for its third Fall Classic win in five years.

Why is a FHS grad who is a Giants player and meeting a politician a new story on this site along with a picture? Now a pic with a President ... That would be newsworthy for a local paper.

Oh wait.. Just saw "Photo is courtesy of Swalwell's office." It all makes sense now....

Well, perhaps I'm easily impressed, but I was interested to learn that 'our' young Brandon Crawford was attending an event at the White House! And for me, that was newsworthy.

(It was probably easier to get a photo of him with a local politician than with the President, too.)

"Celebrating Giants' title with Pleasanton connection".

Most people already knew this connection from when they won the series before.
