Giants Guests: Austin Jackson, Mark Melancon, Austin Slater, Mac Williamson & Tyler Beede

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated once a  week on!

We have a wide range of Giants guests as spring training continues in the Cactus League. Austin Jackson joins us (while getting some ribbing from Pablo Sandoval when talking about the 2012 World Series), as well as Tyler Beede and Mark Melancon from Scottsdale Stadium. Mac Williamson and Austin Slater were interviewed at media day in San Francisco prior to Fan Fest.


Mac Williamson is off to a great start in Cactus League play with a .412 batting average, 4 HR, 13 RBIs in his first 15 games, but he is realistic about the meaning of those numbers: …“I don’t think it’s super important to look at the numbers in spring. Everybody is trying to work on something and get in the rhythm and that includes the opposing pitchers. They’re not immune to making mistakes in spring that they’re not going to make during the season…I’ve had ok springs in the past and it hasn’t always translated to the season…For the most part it’s important to remain healthy.”

Listen To Jackson, Slater, Melancon, Williamson and Beede
