SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS -- We’ve had the chance to view some scenes from the highly anticipated movie during a screening at Pixar’s studio in Emeryville and are happy to report that Rickey — all clad in green and gold — makes a cameo appearance.

So how did this happen? Jonas Rivera, a producer on Toy Story 4, apparently deserves the credit. Rivera, a Castro Valley native and San Francisco State grad, is said to be a huge fan of the East Bay team rooted in Oakland. He even threw out a ceremonial first pitch during a 2014 game, where he had a chance to meet Henderson.
