[edit] Biographical Information

Sergio Romo is a relief pitcher for the San Francisco Giants who made his Major League debut in 2008.

Romo was drafted by the Giants in the 28th round of the 2005 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Joe Strain and made his pro debut that summer.

Romo was a part of the 2010 Giants team that won the World Series over the Texas Rangers. In 2012, he shared closer duties with Santiago Casilla during the regular season after Brian Wilson was injured early in the year, and picked up 15 saves. He was the closer in the postseason, and picked up saves in Games 2 and 3 of the 2012 World Series, both times completing 2-0 wins over the Detroit Tigers by pitching a scoreless 9th inning. He was again called upon in Game 4, after the Giants had taken a 4-3 lead in the top of the 10th. He dispatched the Tigers in brilliant fashion, fanning Austin Jackson, pinch-hitter Don Kelly and Miguel Cabrera in order to pick up his third save as the Giants completed a four-game sweep.

On January 1, 2013, he was involved in an incident in Las Vegas, NV, when he failed to produce appropriate identification to clear security at the city's airport. The incident degenerated, police intervened, and Romo was handcuffed, detained briefly, and issued a citation for violating airport rules. He issued a public apology two days later when the incident became public.
