SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants manager Bruce Bochy drew chuckles from reporters and quickly became viral on social media, when he addressed the media donning a San Francisco 49ers hat before Thursday's game against the Rockies.
Quarterback Alex Smith was initially fined $15,000 for wearing a Giants hat during a postgame press conference following the 49ers game on Sunday. The National Football League then rescinded the fine for wearing non-sponsored gear following a game, and left Smith with just a warning.
Smith has been frequently seen around AT&T Park cheering on the Giants, which Bochy has noticed.
"Alex, he supports us, so I'm going to support him," Bochy said. "Sometimes we take some things too seriously. He comes out here and supports us, and we appreciate it."
