The Best of the Best – Pitchers (New York)

Since 1970 fans have been able to vote their favorite position players and last year Giants fans accepted the challenge and as The Sporting News put it, “MLB All-Star Game 20102: Giants fans know best; their guys lead NL rout”.  Voting has started to for the 2013 game so let’s keep the tradition going!

Between John McGraw managing the first All Star Game, to Bruce Bochy managing the next one, 88 players have represented the Giants in the Mid-Summer Classic.

From 1933 to 1957 the Giants had 8 All-Star pitchers:

  1. Carl Hubbell
  2. Hal Schumacher
  3. Cliff Melton
  4. Larry Jansen
  5. Sal Maglie
  6. Hoyt Wilhelm
  7. John Antonelli
  8. Marv Grissom

 

View Level Timeline – Part 2

In 2008, to celebrate our 50th anniversary in San Francisco  we installed a timeline on the View Level at the ballpark which highlighted some of our great players and amazing moments.  We know that all of our fans are not able to come to a game at the park, or those who do may not be old enough to remember some of our alumni.  For this road trip we decided to showcase the timeline and give everyone a bit more information about the moments.  These banners highlight everything from the 60s to the mid-80s.
