VIDEO: Return of Tim Lincecum and Incredible Tribute Clip Highlight Bruce Bochy Retirement Ceremony

Though they're wrapping up the 2010s in quiet fashion, the San Francisco Giants will never forget what happened this decade. This franchise hadn't won a World Series on the west coast, a point of indignity that changed in a big way in 2010...and 2012, and 2014. That culture of success was thanks to a ton of disparate personalities, all culled together by Bruce Bochy, who was honored following Game 162 on Sunday. It all started after the game, with this amazing clip chronicling Bochy's journey, and narrated by his right-hand man, Tim Flannery.

And yes, Bochy's beloved ex-Giants showed up in full force to honor him, and one returning great stood out, in particular.

Yes, Tim Lincecum is back!!

After a far-too-short big league career that started with a few of the most dominant campaigns this game has ever seen, Lincecum culled one of the largest ovations of anyone honoring Boch on this September evening.

We can't believe this guy really exists.

The game will miss Bruce Bochy tremendously, but at least he got a Lincecum-led group hug on his final day managing a big league squad.

You could do far worse than that.
