Giants’ Logan Webb set to duel ex-teammate Tyler Beede, who officiated Webb’s wedding

The Pirates and Giants will face off in the second game of a three-game set Saturday night in San Francisco. There’s more at stake than wins and losses for the starting pitchers.

You see, Pittsburgh’s Tyler Beede and San Francisco’s Logan Webb are as stubborn as thieves, so much so that Beede officiated Webb’s marriage. For real.

Former teammates facing each other is nothing new. But a registrar taking on the groom? Well, that will get people talking.

When it comes to baseball, Beede and Webb go way back. They were each selected by the Giants in the 2014 MLB Draft — Beede was a first-round pick while Webb was a fourth-round pick.

For the better part of eight seasons, they were teammates. They made their MLB debuts with the Giants in 2018 and 2019, respectively, and developed a friendship along the way.

This friendship had its perks. Beede developed a fondness for officiating marriages. He faithfully filled the role at his ex-teammate Tyler Rogers’ wedding in 2020.

Beede did such an outstanding job at Rogers’ wedding that Webb also enlisted his services.

“Five minutes before the ceremony, Tyler said to us, ‘Why don’t you say your vows in front of everyone?'” I was very nervous about it, but a few cocktails beforehand probably helped a bit. I’m so glad we did,” Webb wrote in a blog post for the Giants’ Medium page.

(That’s Beede in the background in case you’re wondering)

Beede was waived by the Giants in May. The pirates have claimed him. He continued to have great success for Pittsburgh, posting a 3.28 ERA mostly for relief.

Webb, on the other hand, is an ace. He has a 3.17 ERA in 23 starts and was one of the bright spots in a less-than-stellar season at San Francisco.

The two friends have a chance to find each other under the floodlights of Oracle Park. Regardless of what happens, it should be a spectacle, one rooted in love and faith. . . and deletions.
