The San Francisco Giants’ season is trending upward thus far, especially after its win on Tuesday against the Phillies, led by catcher Buster Posey’s two home runs.
The team is trending in the right direction in another area, too — Covid-19 vaccinations. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Posey recently received the first of his two shots, and the team is on its way to having 85 percent of its travelling crew vaccinated. The crew includes players, coaches, equipment managers or any person that travels with the team
If the team can reach that threshold, there will be fewer restrictions, per the Chronicle’s Susan Slusser.

Now that’s some serious incentive to get vaccinated. Though doctors and scientists in the United States recommend the shot(s), many are hesitant, so that the Giants are “trending in the right direction” as manager Gabe Kapler said, is noteworthy.
Perhaps more noteworthy: Posey’s second home run on Tuesday. It was on a high hard one, at 98 miles per how to be exact. Posey turned the baseball around in a hurry.
That HR has to fill the club with confidence. Posey, the three time World Series champ, looks to be in prime form. This was his first two-home run game since 2016.
Next up for the Giants (11-6), another game against the Phillies and a chance at a series sweep on Wednesday.
