Bochy tipped his cap to the sellout crowd as he received a long standing ovation during pregame introductions.

He also threw out the ceremonial first pitch, with Pablo Sandoval catching.

Unfortunately, the Giants lost to Tampa Bay, 5-2.

After the game, Bochy called the reception "overwhelming," and said it's something he'll never forget.
