Brandon Crawford sent the entire city of San Francisco into a frenzy late last night when he hit a walk-off two-run homer to win it for the San Francisco Giants, who were two strikes away from having their four-game win streak snapped.
But Crawford wasn’t having any of that, and he put the bat and the ball and delivered in the clutch when the Giants needed him the most.
The fans inside Oracle Park weren’t the only ones celebrating.
Crawford’s wife took a video of his children witnessing the moment where dad hit a walk-off home run, and they were loving every minute of it.

Kids Celebrate Dad’s Game Winner
These adorable children provided us with the wholesome content we all need right now.
They knew how big the moment was, that their dad was the final hope for the Giants in that game.
But when Crawford came through, the kids made sure to celebrate their dad’s accomplishment.
They may not understand the concept of games back or how the postseason race works, but what matters to them as that they got to see their dad play the hero for his team.
The win for the Giants is their fifth straight and got them to within 4.5 games of the final NL Wild Card spot.
Crawford has been one of the Giants’ core players for several years now and is no stranger to big moments.
But he sure made his kids’ night with his heroics as his wife watched and recorded them doing a celebratory dance for their father.
Not many children get to say that their dad was a professional baseball player, nor that they got to see their dad hit a walk-off home run.
But Crawford gave his family a moment to remember.
