Story | Oct 17, 2014 | 3:37 PMWho are you pulling for in the World Series? The Kansas Royals are America's Team, but the San Francisco Giants have some strong Eastern Connecticut links. The Giants' Double A affiliate was in Norwich before shifting to Richmond, Va. after the 2009 season, so San Francisco's roster has a few players who wore Connecticut Defenders uniforms. Travis Ishikawa, whose NLCS Game 5 walk-off home run sent the Giants to the World Series, spent parts of three seasons (2006, 2007, 2008) in Norwich. Also part of the 2008 Defenders: Pablo Sandoval and Sergio Romo. The 2009 team, which lost in the Eastern League final, included shortstop Brandon Crawford and ace Madison Bumgarner, who was 9-1 for Connecticut. So, although the Defenders are long gone, the former Dodd Stadium tenants are alive in the Fall Classic.
