It was a mystery and drama of epic proportions. It was the talk of the town for a good three days. It finally concluded on Wednesday afternoon.
That’s when the San Francisco Police Department located and returned Hunter Pence’s scooter to the Giants’ clubhouse. The news broke when Giants’ team chef, Joe Day, who also proclaims himself as a “Scooter Builder” in his Twitter bio, posted a picture of Pence’s scooter back in the clubhouse.
The saga of the scooter had resulted in Pence offering signed bobbleheads, not only to the finder of the scooter, but also to the people that took the scooter. The bobblehead, of course, features Pence riding his scooter. The event also prompted a San Francisco Ramen shop to offer a unique reward.

Pence had already ordered a replacement scooter, and even though he said he was tired of all the talk surrounding his vehicle, he did appreciate the sentiment and urgency displayed by the citizens and fans of San Francisco.
The beloved Giants outfielder has already showed class on two fronts regarding the scooter. He will be donating the replacement scooter to a charity as a way of showing support back to the community. He also attributed the return of the scooter to “Batkid,” the child who, as a part of the Make-A-Wish program, wanted to be Batman for a day. The entire city of San Francisco, including the San Francisco Giants, turned the city by the Bay into Gotham and enabled him to live his dream.
