Tim Lincecum, half-filipino will start for SF Giants in World Series Game 1

Tim Lincecum, originally from Washington state and whose mother is Filipina, has a popular following among the Filipino-American community, especially in the Bay Area.  He won the CY Young Award (as the National League’s best pitcher) in his first two seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) during the 2008 and 2009 campaigns.

Having signed a two-year, $23 million deal with the Giants earlier this year, Lincecum ranks second to seven-time boxing champion and congressman Manny Pacquiao in terms of earnings among Filipino / Fil-Am athletes.  Pacquiao earned close to $40 million in 2009, according to Forbes.  [ Related: Fil-Am Tim Lincecum second to Pacquiao in earnings ]

Like Pacquiao, Lincecum’s accomplishments are beginning to have historical significance.
