Madison Bumgarner gets his vision checked with the classic eye chart
It’s another beautiful day in Arizona, and many of our players started their morning by going to the doctor. For 2 days during spring training they have the opportunity to have their eyes and teeth checked. To add to the fun, the Players Association was also here to get the 360 photos needed to make the player avatars for the video games we all love to play.

Steve Hathaway took this fantastic shot of Monte when we retired his number in 2010
Somehow saying Happy Birthday to Monte Irvin does not seem enough, after all he’s turning 93 years old today. He quickly charmed all of us when he came out to AT&T Park in 2010, and we are looking forward to seeing him many times in the years to come. Happy Birthday Monte!
By hitting a league leading 121 RBIs in 1951, Monte helped the Giants overtake the Dodgers in the pennant race that year
After June 26, 2010 no other Giants player will wear #20 again
