Metallica Day @ AT&T Park

Friday, May 16, 2014

Giants fans got a treat Friday when the city's favorite metal boys showed up at A&T Park to perform the national anthem, auction off custom guitars for charity, and throw out the first pitch of the game. Metallica's James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett gave a Hendrix-conjuring performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner," while Lars Ulrich handled duties from the mound. Unfortunately, the back-and-forth battle on the diamond proved too much for Giants, with the Miami Marlins defeating San Francisco 7-5. SF Weekly photographer Christopher Victorio was on hand for Giants Day at AT&T Park and sent back these photos of the Metallica boys mulling around on the field.
