Renel grew up going to Giants games at Candlestick Park.
So when the team reached out to her in 1999 about the possibility of becoming the PA announcer in their brand-new stadium, she immediately thought her family and the long line of baseball fans she's a part of.
Renel shares her experience auditioning for the job at Candlestick in November 1999 and takes us through her journey as she approaches her 22nd year in the PA booth. We do a lightning round of Giants World Series experiences and move on to talk about the pandemic and the movement for racial, social, and economic justice.
