The Best of the Best – First Basemen

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.

Four Hall of Famers lead the group of Giants first basemen:

  1. Bill Terry
  2. Johnny Mize
  3. Whitey Lockman
  4. Orlando Cepeda
  5. Willie McCovey
  6. Darrell Evans
  7. Will Clark
