Happy 80th Birthday Davey!

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.

The Best of the Best – Right Fielders

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.

It’s been over 25 years since a Right Fielder has worn a Giants uniform in the All-Star Game, but the list before 1987 is impressive:

  1. Mel Ott
  2. Willard Marshall
  3. Don Mueller
  4. Felipe Alou
  5. Bobby Bonds
  6. Bobby Murcer
  7. Jack Clark
