On his return to the Giants, Pablo Sandoval was reunited with his former host mom

Former Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval rejoined the organization when he signed a minor league contract Saturday. On Sunday, he appeared in his second game with the San Jose -- the California League affiliate of the Giants.
Prior to that game, he reunited with Donna Musgrave, his former host mom when he originally played for San Jose in 2006 and '07. The reunion came during San Jose's Christmas in July Week, so Sandoval was wearing an ugly-Christmas-sweater uniform.

With his best Christmas-morning attire, these photos will hopefully find their way onto some Christmas cards later in the year.
Sandoval is set to join Triple-A Sacramento Tuesday, so his reunion with the Musgraves in San Jose will be short-lived. At least they'll have these great photos to remember the occasion.
