Victorino signs picture for bat boy

By now you have probably seen poor Cameron Hansen take an epic spill while running up the first base line to retrieve Shane Victorino's bat after a first-inning walk. Hansen's fall made it onto Sports Center as well as the front page of Yahoo Sports, catpulting him into mini-celbritydom.

 By now you have probably seen poor Cameron Hansen take an epic spill while running up the first base line to retrieve Shane Victorino's bat after a first-inning walk. Hansen's fall made it onto Sports Center as well as the front page of Yahoo Sports, catpulting him into mini-celbritydom.

Hansen, an 18-year-old college student who is in his fourth season working for the Giants' clubhouse staff, said he received about 20 text messages from friends saying some variation of, "Have a nice fall."

Anyway, Victorino helped commemorate the occasion by signing a video-captured image of the aftermath.

Thanks to Giants clubhouse staffer Andy Harris for forwarding the pic.
