Madison Bumgarner will make his first postseason appearance Wednesday night since his incredible run in 2014 that helped the Giants win the World Series title.
His overall World Series stats are an astonishing 4-0, a save and a 0.25 ERA. He also has three championship rings.
“I think, like a lot of great athletes and pitchers, he is just really good in the moment,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy recently told ESPN. “They’re such good competitors. They don’t let the game itself, the magnitude of the game, bother them.”
As Bumgarner takes the mound tonight against the Mets, here’s more on the pitcher’s background, and family.
