Classy move by the Giants

The Giants for the first time showed their appreciation for the development of their 2019 draft picks by sending each school a Giants commemorative game ball inscribed with the name of the player and the college, as well as a letter asking the football coach at the school to “display this ball proudly as a symbol of gratitude for the countless number of people who helped him on his journey.’’


That is nice

The Giants produce this type of memorabilia on a limited basis that are made available for the purpose of generating funds for charities. I have a football that was produced by the Giants and donated to the Jay's Fund auction. It has all the signatures of 2009 etched on the football displayed in an acrylic case.

a person on BBI or someone from BBI has reached out on behalf of another, the Giants have always responded in kind and swiftly.

Pat Hanlon and his staff take the time to acknowledge the fans with recognition or in memory of loved ones dealing with sickness or even death.

Class is always subjective, but I do know that they've answered the call time and again when asked and that's pretty damn impressive when you think about all of the moving parts and priorities a professional sports organization deals with.
Very cool.

I also think unless this is common practice it's outside the box thinking which I like in my team's execs.

There should be no blue ink in any office setting.

What amazing class

Just a first rate, classy organization. I am in awe of the class. I also believe this reflects on us personally as fans. We are extremely classy by reason of our connection to such class. Just an amazing collection of classy human beings - those in the organization from the owners to the guy who cleans the bathroom, the players, and, most importantly, us fans. Such class. This is what it's all about. Congrats to all.

You've clearly never worked in a law office. The signature sticklers prefer blue signatures because it's easier to tell whether it's an original or photocopy.

Back to the point of the thread, that is cool.

You clearly are not a veteran. Blue ink is forbidden on paperwork in the military. Just for the very reason that you named. There are too many copies of paperwork and blue doesn't always show up clearly. Infantry grunt here and proud of it.

and the Giants have always responded to my requests regarding family issues or highlights. Just view my profile photos as an example. There have been many other times as well.

that was just one of many. Several years ago my nephew was diagnosed with the same Ewings Sarcoma as Mark Herzlich. He and my brother were visiting from Fl. and we went to a Giants game. I just mentioned this to Pat Hanlon and within minutes he arranged for us to meet with Herzlich after the game. My nephew was thrilled as he was a Herzlich fan since his BC days.

The Giants are a class organization when it comes to these types of things. A friend of mine in the organization told me this was a direct result of Wellington Mara who felt the fans were an extension of his own family.

Thank you for sharing that.

a buddy reached out to the Giants. They sent flowers to the viewing and a signed ball for his children. Later when we had a dinner with an auction to raise money for his family, the Giants sent the roster card for the game against SF signed by Tynes, D'Ossie, and Weatherford.

I have been frsutrated at times with the team, but I will never ever say anything bad about the organization.

As a side note, I contacted the Mets re getting something for the uaction and never heard back.
