“I can think of no better place than in this ballpark, where she gave the biggest piece of her heart, to say thank you to Alex for showing me what it is to be a true friend…” – Giants legends turn out to honor sailor Alexis Busch at AT&T Park – Marin Independent Journal

Busch constantly reminded those around the Giants that she could do anything that the boys could do. Novato’s Ted Griggs, vice president and general manager of Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, remembered a particular time when she helped open his eyes.

“I remember doing a standup with Joe Garagiola about dads playing catch with their sons,” said Griggs, who once worked for Busch’s father at Marin’s Golden Gate Productions. “She was upset that we said nothing about fathers and daughters, because she played catch with her dad all the time. … Yeah, she had me. She was right.”
