Belt’s wife sends emotional goodbye to Giants after Jays deal originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

It’s the end of an era for Giants baseball.

Brandon Belt’s 12-year tenure in the Bay officially came to an end Tuesday after the former Giants first baseman agreed to a one-year, $9.3 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.

As difficult as it was for some Giants fans to fathom, Belt’s wife Haylee was just as emotional.

The vet was previously unsure about the future of his MLB career just a few months ago, but his Captain duties will continue into the 2023 season.

San Francisco selected Belt in the fifth round of the 2009 MLB Draft out of the University of Texas. He helped the Giants win the World Series in 2012 and 2014, and hit one of the most unforgettable home runs in franchise history against the Washington Nationals in the 2014 NLDS.

He played more than 1,3000 games for the Giants, but injuries got the best of him and took significant time away from his game. And his final season in the Bay was cut short by knee surgery in September.

Over his 12 seasons in orange and black, Belt posted a .356 on-base percentage with an OPS+ that put him 23 percent above the league average.

His departure leaves Brandon Crawford as the only player left on the current roster from the 2012 and 2014 championship teams. It’s bittersweet, and all the great times Belt was a part of are now just memories.

But it will always be nothing but love for the Forever Giant.
