Metallica teamed up with the Major League Baseball’s San Francisco Giants for the 3rd annual Metallica Night on Saturday, May 2.
“We're having a great time down here at AT&T Park for Metallica Day with the San Francisco Giants!,” posted the band, as the home team took on the Los Angeles Angels.
As with previous Metallica Nights, guitarists James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” prior to the game.
Drummer Lars Ulrich threw out the first pitch and bassist Robert Trujillo called for the players to “Play Ball.”
Currently in the studio working on the follow-up to 2008’s “Death Magnetic”, Metallica return to the concert stage on May 9 when they headline at the inaugural Rock In Rio USA festival in Las Vegas.
