Bertha Fajardo grew up going to games at both Candlestick Park and the Oakland Coliseum. Her dad and uncles got her started, but her love of the game survived her teenage years, and in 1997, she got a job with the Giants. In her role as manager of Community and Family Programs, Bertha oversees much of the charitable work that current and former Giants players and their families are involved in.
In Part 1, Bertha takes us through her life, both as a baseball fan, and more recently, as someone whose entire career has been with the sport.
Bertha has been with the Giants since 1997. In Part 2, she talks in more detail about the work she does with the Giants, which involves both current and former players, their families, and groups in the city and around the Bay Area.
