The Best of the Best – Pitchers (1958-1983)

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.

In the first 25 years the Giants were in San Francisco there were 12 All-Star pitchers, including 2 Hall of Famers:

  1. Sam Jones
  2. Mike McCormick
  3. Stu Miller
  4. Juan Marichal
  5. Gaylord Perry
  6. John Montefusco
  7. Gary Lavelle
  8. Vida Blue
  9. Ed Whitson
  10. Greg Minton
  11. Atlee Hammaker
  12. Scott Garrelts

Happy Ring Day!

The Giants players, coaches, staff, broadcasters and fans received their 2012 World Series Rings today.
