April 3, supposed to be the Giants’ home opener, is yet another day without baseball. But it is a day with Mike Krukow.
The legendary Giants broadcaster is here with a poetic message on a day the Giants were supposed to play the Dodgers at Oracle Park, a day of celebration that has become one of routine, just another 24 hours of sheltering in place.
Krukow listed off a series of reasons you would normally look forward to today, saying Giants fans “think torture’s the absolute most fun you can possibly have.”
Before he moved on to the heroes the world has had to recognize most in today’s coronavirus world.
“We are at war and we are fighting an enemy that we can’t even see,” Krukow said on social media on what has been deemed “Opening Day at Home.” “When you think about it, our heroes are no longer the ballplayers across this great nation. Our heroes now are the doctors and nurses and all those who are responsible for our healthcare. Our heroes are first responders and the folks that supply and manage our markets. They courageously face the virus every day while we do the only thing we can do to help them out: We stay at home.”
Baseball will be back at some point, although there are no guarantees for this season.
“We will play again. We will play baseball and we will again share this great game,” Krukow said.
