How ‘Bout Them Giants?


Giants

Number 44- Willie McCovey in the 60s

I went to my first SF Giants game at the old Seals Stadium in 1958, the year they arrived from New York City. I got an autograph from the third sting catcher, Valmy Thomas. I don’t know how many freezing games I watched at Candlestick Park. Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Orlando Cepeda, Juan Marichal, Gaylord Perry, Jack Clark, Will (The Thrill) Clark, Matt Williams, Rick Reuschel (let’s not talk about Barry Bonds), Fifty-two years later they finally win it all with guys named Lincecum, Rentaria, Posey, and Ross. How sweet it is.
