Giants star pitcher Madison Bumgarner was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the first Round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft straight out of high school. He debuted for the Giants in 2009. Despite opening up the 2010 season in the minor leagues, he was called up midway through the season and ended up becoming the youngest left-handed pitcher to throw eight scoreless innings in the 2010 World Series. Bumgarner has won three World Series championships (2010, 2012, 2014) and two Silver Slugger Awards (2014, 2015). He has also been selected to four National League All-Star teams and is the Giants' strikeout leader by a left-handed pitcher in the San Francisco era. Following one of the most dominant postseason and World Series pitching performances in modern MLB history, he was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2014 World Series, the 2014 Babe Ruth Award winner, the 2014 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year, and the 2014 Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year.
