AT&T PARK — It’s not easy being green. You tend to blend into the grass and get stepped on. That’s what San Francisco Giants starter Derek Holland told NBC Sports Bay Area during an off-day on-camera interview earlier this season, in his best Kermit the Frog impression.

Garcia’s campaign would not say how much money was raised at the fundraiser at Steyer’s home, nor how many people were at the Monday night event. The number of donors and their donations will be filed in Garcia’s next campaign finance report, which is due July 16.
