Mavericks prepare for elections Voters take to the polls today to have their voice heard on hot-button issues. BY NATALIA CONTRERAS The Shorthorn senior staff

An architecture class worked with a nonprofit organization to compose structures for North Texas schools. BY SARAH LUTZ The Shorthorn senior staff

Several architecture graduate students are finishing a project that will move children out of the traditional classroom and into a garden. The nonprofit organization REAL School Gardens, which has already added more than 70 classroom gardens to elementary schools around North Texas, approached the students’ professor about incorporating the project with his curriculum. The classroom was designed to remain low cost and incorporate sustainable practices, like rain harvesting or recycled materials, said Lance Abaya, one of the graduate students who worked on the project. “To do this really elaborate shade structure, most of the innovation was how to do a lot with less, like using cheap materials or community efforts to help,” Abaya said. The nonprofit’s goals are to create outdoor spaces for children, to encourage family and community involvement in schools, while putting school gardens in urban neighborhoods. Some of the existing gardens use trees or building over hangs as shade, but this project created a shade STUDENTS continues on page 3


Student regent post up in 2011 Student Congress is encouraging Mavericks to apply for next year’s term with the UT System Board of Regents. BY J.C. DERRICK The Shorthorn senior staff

UTA is looking for the cream of its crop. Monday marked the first day UT System schools from around the state began seeking applications for the lone student position available on the Board of Regents. “We definitely want as many students to apply as possible so that we can select the best candidates to send to the governor for recommendation,” said Jennifer Fox, Student Congress external relations director. Fox said the selection process is also under way for the student who will sit on the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board next year. The non-voting student regent will begin the term June 1 and continue through May 31, 2012. UTA’s nominations have not been chosen in the selection process since the Texas State Legislature authorized the appointments in 2005. REGENTS continues on page 5

Rangers’ run for it all ends with 1-3 loss to Giants FANS MOURN, LOOK TO FUTURE


The University Center Palo Duro Lounge was silent after the big screen television was shutoff and Texas Rangers fans made their way out the doors. The reaction was brought on from the Rangers loss in the World Series to the San Francisco Giants in a 3-1 defeat. About 20 students stayed to watch as the Rangers lost during the World Series Watching Party hosted by University Events. Criminal justice junior Patty Chavez said the Rangers were a different team in the World Series, and she said the loss was difficult. “The last strikeout made me sick to my stomach,” she said. Despite the Rangers losing the series 4-1, psychology freshman David Castilleja has been a Ranger fan his entire life and has high hopes for the future. “They’ll be back next year for sure and they’ll be hungrier,” he said. “They know they can do it now.” Undeclared freshman Taylor Hay began watching the Rangers when they started the postseason and doesn’t think the team will go as far next year. He said the Rangers will break up because of team trades. “They won’t make the playoffs because they won’t have Cliff Lee,” he said. “The Yankees will get him.” – Brianna Fitzgerald

ARLINGTON — The prize that eluded Willie and Barry at long last belongs to the San Francisco Giants, thanks to a band of self-described castoffs and misfits and their shaggyhaired ace. Tim Lincecum, Edgar Renteria and the Giants won the World Series on Monday night, beating the Texas Rangers 3-1 in a tense Game 5 and taking the trophy home to the city by the Bay for the first time. It was an overdue victory — the Giants last wore the crown in 1954, four years before they moved West. So much for a franchise that never quite got it done in October despite the

likes of baseball giants Willie Mays, Barry Bonds and Juan Marichal. It’s November, and now new stars stand tall in San Francisco. “This buried a lot of bones — ‘62, ‘89, 2002,” Giants general manager Brian Sabean said, ticking off losing Series appearances. “This group deserved it, faithful from the beginning. We’re proud and humbled by the achievement.” Lincecum outdueled Cliff Lee in an every-pitch-matters matchup that was scoreless until Renteria earned the Series MVP award by hitting a stunning three-run homer with two outs in the seventh inning.

Month kicks off on the right foot Monday’s festivities in the UC launched Asian Heritage Month. BY BRIANNA FITZGERALD The Shorthorn staff

Students got a taste of Asia along with their meal in the University Center on Monday. The Asian Heritage Month kickoff started in the University Center Palo Duro Lounge and featured games, a martial arts expo, dessert and traditional dance.

Nursing freshman Diem Wong said she attended the event because she was curious about Asian culture. “When I walk around campus I don’t really see that much Asian culture,” she said. “Here, everything is so diverse — it’s a good representation.” The kickoff was to expose different Asian traditions and create Asian cultural diffusion on campus, said Phillip Truong, Asian HeriHERITAGE continues on page 5

CORRECTIONS The photo caption in Monday’s Texas Rangers story incorrectly said a fan reacted to an error. The Rangers made no statistical errors in Game 4.

Chalmers said Greene doesn’t have the family support most people have and she saw how she struggled to fit a job in with her school schedule, and make time for her children. “She’s just always been a survivor,” Chalmers said. “She gets knocked down and gets right back up again.” Recently Kate was contacted for help from the private sector by Michelle Rhee, former chancellor for public schools of Washington, D.C. and subject of David Guggenheim’s documentary “Waiting for Superman,” a film that aims to analyze the failure of the American school system. “This is huge news for me,” Kate said. “I am reaching an audience that has some great ideas and is just as passionate about broken systems, whether it be educational or societal.” EDNA HORTON

Kate Greene received her social work bachelor’s degree last spring — almost. During Greene’s senior year her ex-husband died, leaving her a single mother of three without support and unable to finish the one Spanish class she needed for her degree. Although she was able to walk across the stage, her degree won’t be valid until she completes the Spanish class. “Once you have a problem at home, you have to be a mommy first — so school takes a back seat,” she said. She is now trying to come up with money to come back to UTA because her financial aid has reached its limit. Greene said she lost the child support she was receiving when her ex-husband died last December. Fueled by the belief that by opening a community resource center she could be a more effective social worker and support her family, she began the Lion’s Den Resale and Resource Center. The center is a place for parenting help and where people can buy lightlyused clothes. She said she hopes she can gather enough funding to support other people in the community, and is looking for funding from outside agencies. Greene’s daughter Kaitlyn Krohmer is a music freshman at UTA. Kaitlyn said once her mom decides to do something - she does it. She said when her mom was going to school they never saw each other. “At first I didn’t understand,” Krohmer said. “But now I see what she is trying to do, now it’s more community-based and she has counseled a lot of people.” Krohmer helps out in her mom’s shop with cleaning, stocking and suggesting music. She said she is not much of a social work person, but she is proud of her mother and what she has accomplished. “She is one of the most amazing people I know and she never gave up, even when times were tough,” Krohmer said. Michelle Chalmers, Kate Greene’s best friend, has known her for 17 years. She said they met when Greene was a manicurist. She began going to Greene for manicures and encouraged her to go back to school. “Kate is a very unique woman,” Chalmers said. “She has an intense drive and you know that she’s going to get this done.”

Students have until Friday to drop classes Students concerned about their progress in classes should make the decision to drop by Friday. Students can’t drop a class after Friday unless they receive special permission from their advisers. Some exceptions include special non-academic reasons, such as deployment in the military or a documented medical illness. University regulation states students can only drop six classes as an undergraduate. However, students who enrolled before fall 2007 are exempt to this rule. Dropped classes will appear as a W on the student’s transcript. Students should speak to the Housing Office about hour requirements for living on campus before dropping. Students should be aware that dropping courses could result in being switched to part-time status which can affect financial aid, scholarships, and insurance coverage. The University Advising Center will be closed tomorrow, and will only be open for students with questions about dropping on Thursday and Friday. Janette Keen, University Advising Center director, said students should ask the Financial Aid office about questions regarding individual financial aid and GPA requirements for maintaining financial aid. — Rachel Snyder


Filmmaker Kip Fulbeck to speak on racial identity Multiracial students are discovering their backgrounds in a presentation from Kip Fulbeck. The author, artist and filmmaker will speak as part of the Diversity Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the University Center Bluebonnet Ballroom. Fulbeck’s presentations are focused on biracial and multiracial identity, Multicultural Affairs director Leticia Martinez said. “He isn’t simply lecturing,” she said. “As an artist he uses photography and film to express multiraciality.” The lectures are presented to help the audience find out who and what they are regarding their race while living in a country where races are continuously comingling, Martinez said. The artist uses his own work as support for his lectures in helping students find themselves. “He incorporates everything from slam poetry, clips from his films, photography from his books and even skits along with his lectures.” Martinez said. Admission is free but tickets are required. Tickets are available at www. — Brianna Fitzgerald

The Women’s Studies department will hold its annual expanding Your Horizons Conference on Saturday in the University Center. The conference is aimed at arousing interest in math and science amongst girls in sixth through eighth grades. desiree Henderson, Women’s Studies interim chairwoman, said the purpose is to expose the girls to career opportunities in math and science and dispel stereotypes. “We live in a patriarchal society which tends to believe that girls are weak with logical and mathematical concepts,� Henderson said.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina talks to a potential voter Monday as she visits with volunteers working a phone bank during a campaign stop in Elk Grove, Calif.


What to watch in today’s elections How early will America know if it’s a Republican romp or if Democrats somehow minimized their damage? There should be plenty of clues Tuesday evening — and long before bedtime. Final results in some states might not be known for days. But trends could be evident from the Midwest and South — especially from Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia — even before most of the nation has finished dinner. Six states have polls that close at 7 p.m. EDT, and 16 more close by 8 p.m., featuring plenty of telling races in the East and Midwest. First up: Indiana, Kentucky, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Vermont, offering the first hard evidence of just how big a night it’s going to be for Republicans.

300 participants this year, Henderson said. Television shows increased interest in the forensic sciences, said dana Austin, senior forensic anthropologist at the Tarrant County Medical examiner’s office. Austin is conducting a workshop on forensic anthropology at the event. She said television shows dramatize forensics and her workshop is aimed at giving participants an accurate image of the field. Participants will move through different stations, see examples of skeletal material and learn how to identify various characteristics of the individual such as gender, she said. “When they see us and listen to us talk about it, it inspires the girls to go into this field,� Austin said. “They see us as people and it helps remove some fears they

might have about the subject.� The sixth through eighth grades are when students typically drift away from math and sciences, said Suzanne Baldon, criminal justice instructor at Mclennan Community College. Young women need to view pursuits in math and science as admirable, she said. She said students should see being smart as not a bad thing but normal and acceptable. Baldon will conduct The Case of the Missing Face, a facial construction workshop. Skulls with tissue markers will be placed around the room and participants will learn how to place the eyes, nose, ears etc. using clay models. The day will begin at 8 a.m. with refreshments in the University Center Bluebonnet Ballroom. Vidwan raghaVan

structure that could be both iconic and assembled at several different locations, said Jennifer Fitzgerald, reAl School Gardens community relations director. “They did a great job considering what materials would do best for students, and that would spend extended periods of time in the sun,� she said. “it’s not just a man-made structure, but the garden can grow around it as well, which was really interesting to us.� Nancy Payne, reAl School Gardens garden designer, said the students always brought new ideas and questions every time they met. Payne and Fitzgerald both said students brought a lot of enthusiasm to the project. “They were just very into it,� she said. “They came up with many, many, many design ideas from conservative designs up to very high tech designs.� Abaya said the class, digital Fabrication, was the impetus to getting the structure designed.


Houston police investigate murders of 3 HOUSTON — Police are trying to determine if the slayings of three women in or around downtown Houston since mid-June are related. Police on Monday asked for the public’s help in their investigation of the murders. Each woman was strangled. Two were found within a few blocks of each other. Authorities are offering rewards up to $15,000. The first victim, a 24-year-old woman, was found June 18 at an empty lot on a dead-end street. Then on Sept. 30, a 52-year-old homeless woman was found outside the Catholic cathedral. The latest victim, a 62-yearold homeless woman, was discovered about three weeks ago outside an old YMCA. The last two were found within a few blocks of Houston police headquarters. The first was found about two miles away.


Indonesia volcano erupts, 21 others rumble MOUNT MERAPI, Indonesia — Evacuees cringed and fled for cover Monday as an erupting volcano — one of 22 showing increased activity in Indonesia — let loose booming explosions of hot gas and debris, the latest blast in a deadly week. No new casualties were reported. The new blast from Mount Merapi came as Indonesia also struggles to respond to an earthquake-generated tsunami that devastated remote islands. The twin disasters, unfolding simultaneously on opposite ends of the seismically volatile country, have killed nearly 500 people and severely tested the government’s emergency response network. In both events, the military has been called in to help. — The Associated Press

Architecture graduate students designed a shade structure to incorporate a garden, while giving elementary school students a place to learn. Teachers can teach everything from life science to creative writing in the outdoor classroom.

He said digital fabrication allows architects to see the design as a whole. Without it the project would have taken more than a year, instead of the spring semester. Jon Holden, another architecture graduate student working on the project, said using the digital fabrication helped keep the costs down and made the design reusable.

With a $5,000 budget, the students cut costs in creative places. For example, the design is simple enough that community members and parents can do the actual construction. “They don’t know it, but it basically cut down on a lot of labor costs,� he said. “So everybody can feel like they have a partnership as far as the school goes.�

The structure will go up at one elementary school sometime in early 2011, before constructing it at other schools. Currently reAl School Gardens is looking for additional funding and the contract is in the bidding stages, Fitzgerald said. sarah lutz

Men across the globe will throw out razors to compete and raise money for cancer BY WILLIAM JOHNSON


The Shorthorn senior staff

or music education sophomore Will Long the month of November will be a hairy one. Long and many other men on campus will be participating in No Shave November, an underground annual event dedicated to the growth of facial hair. Long, a drum-line member in the UTA Marching Band, said he and other percussionists are participating in the month’s hairy festivities. For their competition, the rules are straight forward: no facial hair may be shaved or trimmed. Participants should have shaven completely by Monday. “There’s a difference between guys who can grow long beards and guys who can’t,” Long said. “For me, winning is lasting the month.” Spanish sophomore Micah Ulibarri participated in and won an informal facial-hair-growing contest at Trinity House last year. He said by the end of the month, his beard was thick and beautiful. Ulibarri said he felt a sense of pride by the end of the month at how long his bear had grown. “I never looked down on others for the size of their beards,” he said. “I just felt a sense of pride in mine.” Although he doesn’t plan to compete against anyone else this year, he intends to sport a beard for the month of November. “This one is more for my own amusement,” he said. Although the exact origins of the event are cloudy, the Movember Foundation began organizing an event in 2003 from Melbourne, Australia, as a way to raise awareness for men’s health issues through the growing of facial hair. Since traveling overseas, the specifications of the event have changed little. In the United States, some men observe the event by not shaving their entire faces for the month of November. While the intentions of the month are to provide

assistance for issues like testicular and prostate cancers worldwide, geology sophomore Tyler Wright said he believes No Shave November, or sometimes known as NoShavember, encompass all things man. “I think this is a great way for us all to celebrate our manhood, like a man-sperience,” he said. While he didn’t shave on Monday, Wright said he will be participating this month under different rules that allow for the participant to start the month with some facial hair, while filling in the rest throughout the duration. The Movember Foundation has a website for those participating called Mo-space, where pictures of facial hair are posted and rated throughout the month. Visitors to the site can then donate funds to each contestant or team of contestants. The funds raised through the Movember Foundation’s U.S. campaign benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LiveStrong, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Using an online approach similar to President Obama’s 2008 campaign, visitors to the site can donate an amount of their choice to the charity. “We take a little bit of the Obama approach,” U.S. Movember spokeswoman Lisa Heath said. “A lot of people raising a little money.” Since 2003, more than $100 million has been collected to aid men’s health, making it the largest contributor to prostate cancer research aside from governmental agencies. As of press time, the group had about 30,000 U.S. participants with more than $570,000 donated. Last year, Long lasted until Dec. 2. He said he noticed then how much new razors actually cost him. He plans to push through the entire month of November, despite objections from his girlfriend. “It saves you money because razors cost a lot of coins these days.” Long said. “It keeps your face warm and it‘s something to pet while you’re bored.”

Do you have what it takes to grow the best beard at UTA? Enter The Shorthorn’s Maverick Beard-off contest to find out.

Girls find No Shave November to be a hairy situation As the beards grow fierce in No Shave November, there’s one aspect of the competition that may linger on the back burner as the razors are stashed away: What do the ladies think about beards? Public relations senior Jessica Bollom said the first thing that comes to mind when she thinks of a beard is a full on beard from ear to ear, and that she prefers a guy without one. “It seems a little dirty to me,” she said. “Some facial hair is OK though, if the guy takes care of it and keeps it looking nice and under control.” On the other hand, education sophomore Rebeka Miller said she loves beards. She added that she prefers a guy with a beard or at least a little facial hair. “They just look so manly,” she said. “A lot of guys look young without it.” No Shave November is a competition among men during which beard growers keep the razors, trimmers and shaving cream at bay and not shave for the entire month. Participants take pictures of the growth progress for comparison, or see who can grow the best beard. When it comes to men’s facial hair styles, Bollom said she prefers goatees because it’s cleaner looking and not as long as a full on beard. Beards, she said, are not the most attractive thing. “Lets say this guy were to try and give me a kiss I would rather not feel all the hairs poking at my face,” she said. “But then again if the beard is not out of control and the guy takes care of it, this might not be such a problem.” Miller said any guy, be it hipster, geeky or clean-cut, can pull off a beard. “I like a nice dressed guy with a scruffy face, but any style can rock a beard,” she said. “If it looks good on the face, do it.” Electrical engineering junior Jasmine Pankratz said her likeness of beards depends on the person’s face, style and if they keep it clean and well-groomed. “I just prefer guys without the beard,” she said. “I’m not a fan of scraggly beards and I don’t like the way they feel.” Miller said she has heard of No Shave November and has been excited for it since the beginning of October. “This is probably my favorite time of the school year seeing all the guys with their scruffy faces,” she said. “I would insist on a boyfriend participating.” Bollom said she would also encourage a boyfriend to go for the beard. “That is, until I start finding food or something in it,” she said. “Because then we might have a problem.” ALANNA QUILLEN

tage Month chairman. “Everyone here gets a chance to experience different things that we do in Asian culture,� he said. The event had a series of games, including a trivia wheel about Asian pop culture and paper shurikens, a traditional game from Japan and China, and a game of lucky chess, a Vietnamese and Chinese game. Mechanical engineering freshman Michael Lam volunteered at the event to expand his knowledge on different Asian cultures. “I wanted to see different Asian cultures that I’m not familiar with,� he said. Lam helped at the table that featured lucky chess. The object of the game is to place a fan on an animal, then roll animal-sided dice and hope that the dice reveals the animal you chose. Ricky Pence, University Martial Arts Association president, said the organization wanted to support Asian Heritage Month while promoting its culture. The organization per-

formed tae kwon do, a Korean martial arts method of self-defense. “There’s a huge history of martial arts in almost every Asian culture,� Pence said. “I use Korean commands when doing techniques and try to be historically accurate.� Patty Sun, instructor for the J.K. Wong Kungfu Tai Chi Academy, brought costumes and taught students the Lion Dance, a traditional Chinese dance. “The Lion Dance represents good luck and scares away bad luck from previous years,� she said. The dance involved humans impersonating and representing a lion by using synchronized movements with their bodies. Students had the opportunity to try a traditional Filipino dessert, Halo-Halo, which consists of ice, evaporated and condensed milk and tapioca pudding with ice cream on top. “There’s a majority of different Asian cultures,� nursing junior Anthony Ngoo said. “During these events we bring other cultures in and learn about them.� Brianna FitzgeralD

Herbivores host animal-free lunch Students shared their dietary experiences, restaurants and recipes for World Vegan Day. By Allen BAldwin The Shorthorn staff

Taylor Keelan had a chocolate craving, but she decided to go vegan for a week. She searched through the market for half an hour for chocolate that didn’t contain milk. No luck. “I just went back to my room and found a big tub of icing and ate it,� the biology freshman said. Keelan spoke of her participation in World Go Vegan Week last week, where people challenged themselves to live a vegan lifestyle. In celebration of World Vegan Day on Monday, UTA’s Vegan Club held a potluck in the University Center Sabine Room. The day was started in 1994 by the United Kingdom-based Vegan Society. Vegan food contains no meat or animal products, like milk or honey. Ann Mai, civil engineering sophomore and Vegan Club president, said the potluck also was to celebrate the benefits of being a vegan and the people who challenged themselves the previous week. Mai said there are health benefits to becoming a vegan like lower cholesterol and more fiber. There are also environmental benefits because it takes more resources to raise animals than to grow food and animal rights benefits. In 2008, 0.5 percent or one million Americans were reported vegan according to a study by the maga-

zine Vegetarian Times. Food at the potluck included pumpkin pasties, macaroni and cheese, red velvet cupcakes and pizza. Conversations among the estimated 20 attendees included topics related to veganism, including local vegan restaurants, products and recipes. Keelan said she became a vegetarian three years ago after watching a documentary called “Meet your Meat,� a 13-minute video on factory farms and the meat industry, made by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA. She said she decided to try veganism after visiting a Vegan Club booth on campus last week. “I felt better, but it’s hard because you have to look at all the ingredients of food,� she said. Keelan said during her week of veganism she stuck to salads and vegetables, specifically broccoli. Keelan said she had difficulty but wants to try going vegan at another time. Broadcast communication sophomore Natalie Kahan said she became vegan two months ago after being a vegetarian for seven years. Kahan said she’s doing well because she lives with her boyfriend who is vegan and they eat the same food. “Since I became a vegetarian, I’ve had no temptation for meat, but since I became vegan I’ve had temptations for cheese,� she said.

research before voting today. “I will research, I’d like to know the candidate I’m voting for,� she said. “Immigration is one thing I’ll keep in mind.� Biology freshman Jose Ochoa said he is not voting because he’s not informed or registered to vote. He said people shouldn’t vote if they are not informed. “It is better to be informed — what if you end up voting for Allan Saxe, political someone who turns science associate out to be a monster?� professor he said.

“I am definitely voting Democrat,� she said. “With the Bush administration failing so much voters might not want republican leaders anymore. Texas is a republican state but for it to become democrat, it will be a gradual change.� Communications graduate student Araceli Guerrero said she hasn’t kept up with political race because she focused on her studies and doesn’t watch much TV. However, Guerrero plans to do some

The Governor of Texas is the chief executive of the state and is elected by citizens every four years. The governor must be at least 30 years old and a resident of Texas for the five years immediately before the election. Some of the constitutional and statutory duties of the governor include, signing or vetoing bills passed by the Texas Legislature, serving as commander-in-chief of the state’s military forces and declaring special elections to fill vacancies in certain elected offices.

bottom half, but Lincecum returned to his wicked self and preserved the lead. Lincecum won this game of Texas Hold ‘em, beating Lee for the second time in a week. The two-time NL Cy Young winner gave up three hits over eight innings and struck out 10. Brian Wilson closed for a save, completing a surprising romp through the postseason for a pitching-rich team that waited until the final day to clinch a playoff spot. Manager Bruce Bochy enjoys calling his Giants a ragtag bunch. Maybe Renteria, Cody Ross, Aubrey Huff and Freddy Sanchez fit that description. Cut loose by other clubs this season and before, they all wound up in San Francisco. But the foundation of this team — for now, for the foreseeable future — is totally home grown, built on a deep, talented and young rotation, a rookie catcher named Buster Posey with huge star potential and their bearded closer. “They did all right,� Bochy said. “I couldn’t be prouder of a group. They played with heart and determination. They weren’t going to be denied. My staff, they accepted their roles and had only one mission.� Renteria reprised his role of postseason star. His 11thinning single ended Game 7 of the 1997 World Series and lifted Florida over Cleveland. Forget that he made the last out in the 2004 Series that finished Boston’s sweep

of St. Louis — this journeyman’s path led to another title, helped by his go-ahead home run in Game 2. “It was a tough year for me,� the oft-injured shortstop said. “I told myself to keep working hard and keep in shape because something is going to be good this year.� A team seemingly free of egos did everything right to take the lead. Ross, the surprising MVP of the NL championship series, stayed square and hit a leadoff single and Juan Uribe followed with another hit up the middle. That put a runner at second base for the first time in the game and brought up Huff, who led the Giants in home runs this year. So what did he do? He expertly put down the first sacrifice bunt of his career. Lee struck out Pat Burrell to keep the runners put, but Ross began hopping home as soon as Renteria connected, sending a drive that kept sailing and landed over the leftcenter field wall. And just like that, all the Giants’ past troubles seemed like ancient history. Bonds, Mays and several other former San Francisco stars are still a part of the Giants family. Bonds got a hallowed home-run record, but questions persist about alleged steroids use. He visited the Giants clubhouse during the Series and got a big hand from fans when he took his seat at AT&T Park.
