SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Sergio Romo raced down a tunnel inside AT&T Park on Saturday, slapping hands with a sea of supporters chanting his last name during Fan Fest. He danced with some, posed for pictures with others and riled up the rest.

San Francisco's new bearded closer has no trouble in the limelight.

After a dominant and demonstrative performance throughout October, Romo's role for the defending World Series champion Giants will go beyond pitching the ninth inning this season. He's one of the franchise's faces now, especially with Brian Wilson and his bushy black beard likely gone, and he's already finding ways to embrace his newfound fame.
