SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Hunter Pence still hears about that wacky hit when the ball came off his bat three times in one single swing.
Pence broke his bat making contact for a key double in a 9-0 victory against St. Louis in Game 7 of the NL championship series last October.
Not that anybody's too surprised when something like that happens to Pence.
The San Francisco Giants right fielder is quirky, just plain odd if you were to poll some of his pals - like second baseman Marco Scutaro.
Pence rode a scooter sans helmet to the ballpark last season, a seven-block trip that will be shorter this year since he now lives closer. He plans to ride it again this season for the World Series champions.
