More than 1,000 young San Francisco sports fans had all their baseball questions answered Thursday by a true expert -- Giants pitcher Brian Wilson.

Wilson hosted a question and answer session at AT&T Park for members of the Junior Giants baseball program, a free program offered to about 17,000 children in more than 85 underserved communities, team officials said.

Each Junior Giants member at Thursday's event also received baseball gloves and tickets to Thursday's game against the Padres from the famed pitcher.
