While many of us were sleeping last night on the east coast, Madison Bumgarner became an instant millionaire. No, he didn't win the lottery. The San Francisco Giants gave the left hander, who played at South Caldwell High School, a five-year contract extention. And
$35 million dollars of that money was guaranteed. Bumgarner, who led the Spartans to a Class 4A state title his senior year in 2007, was selected by the Giants with the tenth pick in the Major League Baseball Draft. Bumgarner, despite a slow start last season, finished the year with a 12-12 record. On October 31, 2010, Bumgarner pitched 8 shutout innings in Game 4 of the 2010 World Series, becoming the fourth youngest pitcher to start and win a World Series game. This win gave the Giants a 3–1 lead in the series, en route to the Giants winning their first World Series championship in 56 years. He was also named a starting pitcher on Baseball America's 2010 All-Rookie Team.
