-- i mean, batting title, there are so many accolades and everything on the field. we are waiting on our reporter j.r. stone to get set up. . he asked a great question about buster's relationship with the fans that we will get to in a moment here, but a funny moment as short time ago where the director of baseball operations started to talk. he looked down at buster and his wife and said, are you sure, are you really doing this? [laughter] any possibility you might change your mind for a moment? but no, this is happening. buster actually mentioned that after more than a decade in northern california, that his wife and therefore kids are most likely moving back to georgia, where they are both from, to be closer to family. so there are a lot of changes in store for the i was heartened
by the fact that the president of the organization's they will try to create a role so he can be part of the family, part of the giants organization. but fans, we all want him to continue to be part of the giants family. and he talked about that, how the fans in the bay area, he couldn't talk about how it was truly a community and a team and just all the guys, it has truly been amazing, and how much he contributed from a community standpoint. you know the baseball and gloves giveaway that he does every year, it is just amazing. larry: they had all these that they were going to get a quality player that would be a fixture in the lineup for years to come. he had all these hopes, and
buster, far and away exited everything. he was the glue that heldeldeld team together through many ups and downs. let's go to j.r. stone right now . he is at the news conference at oracle park. j.r: buster posey is still posel talking. you know what kristin said, what we heard from those fans, yes, there is sadness, but there is a lot of smiles here in the building because people are looking back on what buster posey brought not only to the organization, but what he brought to san francisco and the memories he brought to all the fans out there. that is something special and something that will be remembered out here. they are just wrapping up, they just told me, we are still going. i do want to show you some of the video. we talked quite a bit today about being with family, about
spending time with family. and it was only right that he came in today with his family by his side, a big decision for him. but he said, to be close to family and to physically feel good in some of those months where he hasn't necessarily felt good because of the strains that come with being a major league baseball player, not only a major league baseball player, but being a catcher at that. we wanted, some of the moment doing the press conference, some of what he said. take a listen. >> as you know, i am here today announcing that i am retiring. a lot of you out there probably know my first instinct is not to get behind a microphone. but as i thought about what i wanted to say today, i realized it is such a unique opportunity to publicly thank so many people that helped me get here, helped me stay here, and fulfill a lifelong dream to play major
league baseball. i would like to thank the woman sitting up here with me today, kristin. most importantly, thank you for being an amazing mom to our kids, thank you for the love and support from the first game to the last. it doesn't seem like it was that long ago that i remember you sitting at the lee county high school games with your dad and then florida state university, and then just a couple of years later, in the stands cheering with the rest of the giants community as we won our first title. thanks for being there with me to celebrate all the great moments. even more importantly, thanks for being there on some of the lower ones. you know better than everybody how hard sometimes i would say i
was not performing the way i wanted to, but your love and perspective about what was truly important helped me through those times. i know these years on the west coast will be some of our fondest as we look back on them, and i am so excited to continue sharing life with you and continue watching our kids grow. [laughs] lee, your mom a your mom a ya proud. of the people that you are becoming. so blessed that you our kind, caring and empathetic children. being your dad is the greatest joy of my life. over the years i have heard the stories of what the giants mean two different fans, or watch baseball means two different fans. when i think back on those stories, there is usually one or two, denominators, and that his family and friends. i am sure there are kids out there today who have watched me play my entire career.
they might be adults now. [laughs] and there's parents and there's grandparents, aunts and uncle, nieces and nephews, cousins that can still remember exactly where they were when we hit the game-winning home run in texas that led the san francisco giants to their first world series title, or when sergio romo stood on the mound, shook me off from throwing a sliderm which still scares me to this day, [laughter] snack a fastball past miguel cabrera to cling to the second title in three years. or when madison bumgarner out of the bullpen in game seven at kansas city, and 45,000 people went deathly silent, because they knew at that point, the game and the world series was over. or maybe you remember you were when matt cain's student the back of the mound, gazed at
the crowd, taking it all in before he recorded the final out of the first ever perfect game in giants franchise history. to meet this is what encapsulates baseball. it's a lot more than just winning or losing games, although the wins do feel a lot better. but it is about the time spent with family, the countless nights and days pulling for your team, riding the emotions of the highs and the lows. and ultimately, enjoying the people that you are with along the way and making great memories together. i am so very humbled to have played a part in some of those memories. for the fans, thank you for all of your support i have received in the last 13 seasons. i look forward to creating new memories of my own and sharing them with family and friends as i pull for the giants the rest of my life. thank you. jr: back of here life at
oracle park, you can see there is a crowd now that buster posey has wrapped up his retirement speech. what an afternoon it has been in not only for him, but for his entire family. his wife was by his side. the entire time. it was special being here and listening to some of his moments . i thought it was interesting when people are asking buster, what comes next? what will receive next? could there be tv in the future? he joked, "you guys know how much i love to talk." that being said, i know from when i have covered him at spring training or the world series, he has never turned down an interview. the whole crowd at that point sort of laughed. making a joke about that. but he is excited about what is to come with his family, and we heard family a lot today. it is one thing to hear about it, another to see his family with him and he is discussing.
and talking with fans over the last couple of days or the last 24 hours about this, a lot of them said jr is the heart and soul of this team, and everybody has their own buster memory. i don't know if you have your buster memory, but certainly, everybody is talking about their buster memories here at oracle park. kristen: i think for me it is all the buster hogs. the one he gave medicine bumgarner in that moment in game five when he walked out on the mound and we knew we were going to do this. he led every single pitcher to be there an -- to be their best, and that is not easy. larry: in addition to the greatness on the field, and will show it in a second. just before we go, did kriste ever mentioned the dynamics and the conversation involved in making the decision, like, we
are done, this is it? j.r.: buster talked specifically, saying when it was dead on doing the questions, they said, why are you retiring? he said, it is in those middle of the year months when he is spending time with his kids and it was starting to hurt physically. talk with baseball players, they talk about the toll it takes on your body, not only that, but the toll it takes on your body as a catcher is even more intense. he brought that up during some of the questions today. it was certainly interesting to hear and we certainly wish him the best. but what a moment. what 12 years of moment it has been for him and his family. larry: we know you have a bunch of interviews to get to, so we will let you go. they call the catching gear the tools of ignorance. tools of brilliance and excellence for buster posey, but it did take its toll, a couple of major surgeries.
surely that is one of the factors weighing in on his decision. jr, thank you very much. j.r.: thank you very much. kristen: larry, fans gathered outside for this big day many to say goodbye and thank you to number 28. >> we were devastated. my friend stephanie called me and told me the news and i couldn't believe it. it was devastating. felt like very depressing. but i am so happy that he had an amazing career and he is going out on the high note and he deserves all the >> really sad. tried not to cry right now. i cried yesterday a lot. this reminds me, my dad passed away in 2014 and this was everything. he was more proud of buster that he was my brother. one time he got to say hi to him and it was the highlight of his career. there's a lot of memories we have seeing buster. my dad was a fantasy and he moved to san
he was at the parade in 1958 in he got to see two world series before he passed away. it means a lot to me and my family. >> not only does he have on the field accomplishments but, off the field he seems to be a gentleman, very caring person, family oriented. that means a lot in this day and age. larry: you can see how emotional people are. i would just offered this, there is an old saying, "don't cry because it is over, be happy because you had the chance to experience it." we got the best of buster and three world series titles, and memories that will go on in our heads for lifetimes. so, you have to celebrate the moment and wish him the best. kristen: and i will just share this tweet that barry zito put out. they work together. this is so very true. he said after winning every award possible in the game, your ego is not bigger, and your self-worth no greater. who can say that? you can, buster. larry: yeah.
he is unique in that standpoint. he is not like that at all. he is happiest, the second you finish an interview, he is never happier. but as much as he has been a star on the field, he is famous for his work outside the field. we will continue his philanthropic work focused on pediatric cancer research. kristen: abc 7 news reporter luz pena spoke to a bay area nonprofit that is thankful for the work buster posey has done over the years. luz: he is the greatest catcher in giants history, but his legacy goes beyond baseball. >> i think we were among, if not the first nonprofit that he really got involved with. so i like to think that we helped shape him and his family's philanthropy. luz: in 2014, buster posey and his wife kristen visited the children house, a pediatric care center. here, he met one of the patients, justin. >> they sat and talked baseball.
justin was a baseball fan and this was wonderful for him to have that opportunity. luz: two years later in 2016, the family launched the bp 28 foundation, focused on pediatric cancer research. >> if it is not in the millions, it is in the high hundreds of thousands of children that buster has supported. luz: one of the factors that moved the posies early on was learning that only 4% of cancer funds raised in the u.s. were going to pediatric research. his foundation has raised over $5.5 million and created partnerships with multiple cancer research institutions including ucf -- -- ucsf children's hospital. how often does it come? >> minimum five times a year. luz: now that he is retiring from baseball, he is officially not retiring from the work here? >> right, and we hope you can come visit us even more. luz: this is justin, one of the first patient he met several years ago. meeting him is still a highlight of his life in recovery.
how is justin doing today? >> he is 25. we haven't seen him for a few years but i spoke with his wife a little bit ago and he is doing really well. luz: one of the many people thinking buster posey today, who will now devote his time to being a dad of four children. in san francisco, luz pena, abc 7 news. kristen: it is great. of course, the work will continue. the buster posey 28 pediatric cancer found, in the thousands of kids who have baseball gloves and got into the game because of him, quite a legacy. larry: jr asked me my favorite moment -- resourced her bag lost her home, a young girl, a huge buster posey fan, and he came on the zoom call with us that we set up and helped her gather thousands and thousands and thousands of baseball cards because she lost her cards in one of the many fires we have seen in the past few years, the creek fire in the southbay, i believe. and for him to take the time to
join us and to talk to a young girl that was her hero, i mean, it was just fantastic. she was in tears, we were -- there was a lot of tears to talk about. kristen: you heard larry say, he had time for every single fan who asked for an autograph. he was amazing. larry: alright, mora what makes new salonpas arthritis gel so good for arthritis pain? salonpas contains the most prescribed topical pain relief ingredient. it's clinically proven, reduces inflammation and comes in original prescription strength. salonpas. it's good medicine. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

they are renters. many other groups are providing recommendations to state regulators as the program revisions. the solar industry is concerned that reform could be harmful at a time when there is more focus on clean energy. >> nobody is going to go solar if it costs you more money to do that. nobody, and we will lose tens of thousands of jobs, hundreds of businesses, and have no relief from blackouts, wildfires, and rising rates. david: the coalition is expected to release its recommendations in december. david louis, abc 7 news. kristen: coming up next, the women's volleyball team who lost their gear during a smash and grab his thinking their neighbors tonight. . how they got their gear back. larry: plus the triplets pouring in for alameda county supervisor wilma
