Hunter Pence says teams interested in him, would welcome Giants reunion originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com
Hunter Pence always will have a special place in Giants fans' hearts.
Despite a farewell tour at the end of last season, he's definitely not saying goodbye to the game of baseball. In a Q&A with NBC Sports Bay Area, the outfielder mentioned he's heard from a few teams and that a reunion with the Giants is something he would consider.
"Yeah, a couple teams have reached out," Pence said Tuesday. "I'm not going to really discuss who, but I'm really open -- I want a chance to play, a chance to win."
So would he really come back to the Giants, who have younger outfielders but a long history with Pence?
"I'm very open to coming back -- absolutely," Pence said. "I love it here, and I told Larry [Baer] you know, send your scouts to come watch [in Dominican Republic winter ball]. I'm going to make this change, and he said, 'We will definitely be checking in.' I haven't heard from them yet -- a couple of other teams. But I know they are changing GMs and all of that, so we will see.
We'll see indeed.
