August 20th, 2013
Tonight was a very special evening. For more than 50 years, Jim Davenport has played various roles within the Giants organization. He was an All-Star third baseman and Gold Glove winner in 1962, while playing alongside future Hall of Famers Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Juan Marichal and Gaylord Perry. After a 13 year career as the Giants third baseman, this Forever Giant continued to contribute to the organization as a third base coach, a manager, and in various roles throughout our minor league system. A native of Suluria, Alabama, he signed with the Giants in 1958 and is still serving as a special assistant for Brian Sabean and our baseball operations department.
This past Saturday, on August 17th, Davey celebrated his 80th birthday and tonight Giants fans were able to wish him a Happy Birthday and thank him for his on-going service to the San Francisco Giants organization.
