Social media has its frustrating moments. But on occasion, it can come through and help produce a nice story. San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt produced one of those moments on Wednesday.
It started with Darren Brazil, brother of Brodie Brazil, an on-air personality for NBC Sports Bay Area, the station that covers the Giants.
Alexis Pence, wife of Giants outfielder Hunter Pence, wanted to help. Unfortunately, while Pence is a large man, even his feet are not that big.
Fortunately, she knew of someone who could possibly help.
Lol even hunters aren't that big. Maybe @bbelt9 has some to spare?

That’s where Belt came in to prove her hunch correct.
Belt’s massive feet often come in handy when trying to hold first base on a wide throw. On Wednesday, they came through to help Brazil and Pence supply Dennis with some shoes.
pretty sure I can help out with this. Will give to hunter when we return to Bay Area

So, there you have it.
Social media coming together to help a man in need, without a hint of negativity to it.
It is possible.
