As a kid, Brett Bochy served as a bat boy for his father's team in San Diego.

Now, he's a right-hander his dad can summon out of the San Francisco bullpen.

Bochy had his contract purchased by the Giants from Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday. His manager - and father - Bruce Bochy will have the best seat in the house when the 27-year-old makes his major league debut.

This will be the second time a San Francisco player has taken the field with his dad as the skipper. Moises Alou played outfielder for Felipe Alou in 2005.

The Giants played Tuesday night at Colorado.
