Pablo Sandoval joined the San Francisco Giants in spring training because he wanted to keep playing baseball.

And after getting cut by the Giants just ahead of the 2024 season, the Kung Fo Panda has found a new home. According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, Sandoval has signed with the Staten Island Ferry Hawks, of the Atlantic League.

The 37-year-old Sandoval received a non-roster spring training invitation from the Giants earlier this offseason. In 16 spring training games, Pablo Sandoval connected with only seven hits in 28 at-bats.

When the Giants took on the Sacramento River Cats, Sandoval told the media that he hadn’t closed the book on his playing career.

“I want to play. I want to continue to play,” he said at the time.

Over 11 big league seasons with the Giants, Sandoval was an integral piece of three World Series championships (2010, 2012, 2014), winning World Series MVP in 2012.

The third baseman also secured two All-Star appearances while hitting .285, drilling 135 home runs, and driving in 569 runs over 1,149 games in the orange and black.

He last played in the majors for the Atlanta Braves in 2021. He then went on to play in the Mexican League during the 2022-23 seasons and played in the Dubai-based ‘Baseball United’ league along with retired or aged stars like Robinson Cano and Bartolo Colon.
