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
