The Giants' season is winding down, while the Sharks' is just about to get started. But on Wednesday night, the two teams' worlds collided with "San Jose Sharks Night" at Oracle Park.
Before the Giants took on the visiting Colorado Rockies, Sharks winger Evander Kane threw out the first pitch. But going into his big moment, Kane wasn't sure how it would turn out.
"It's either going to be really good or really bad," Kane told NBC Sports Bay Area's Kelli Johnson on Giants Pregame Live.
As it turns out, Kane has been a Giants fan for a while, primarily due to a certain legendary home-run hitter.

Eventually, though, it was time for Kane to put his baseball skills to the test. He passed with flying colors.

While Kane might be the guest of honor at Wednesday's game, he's most certainly not the center of attention. That would be Giants manager Bruce Bochy, who is down to five games left in his San Francisco managerial career.
Kane and the Sharks made sure to leave Bochy with a retirement gift.

Bochy should have a lot more free time on his hands soon, so maybe he'll return the favor and show up at SAP Center to watch the Sharks this coming season.
Because, you know, #BayAreaUnite.
