An MLB season can be grind. Players, coaches and managers spend a lot of hours in the clubhouse over six months of the regular season, making it a home away from home.
Thinking about how much time these men spend here away from their families makes you wonder what the average player might accumulate over the course of a season and what he might keep in his locker.
Hunter Pence’s girlfriend, Lexi, wondered as much and she decided to check it out. What she found was a potpourri of memorabilia, equipment, fan mail and random items that Pence held on to for one reason or another during his 11th season in the big leagues and his fifth with the San Francisco Giants.
Pence has two lockers in the Giants clubhouse because he apparently needs them for all of his stuff. The most interesting item Pence keeps around is a spiked Spartan helmet that sits on top of his locker or maybe it’s the unopened bottle of Johnny Walker Blue Label.
Pence hasn’t played since Aug. 17. He is on the disabled list with an oblique strain. The Giants obviously need a healthy Pence down the stretch as they fight for a playoff spot.
