The Best of the Best – Third 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.

No one who has more than 5 letters in their first name has represented the Giants at Third Base:

  1. Sid Gordon
  2. Jim Davenport
  3. Jim Ray Hart
  4. Chris Brown
  5. Matt Williams
  6. Pablo Sandoval

Another Walk-Off!

All it took was a single by Andres Torres, a sacrifice bunt from Brandon Crawford and a line drive single by Brandon Belt for the Giants to complete their second walk-off win in three days.

Here’s the important information from today:

  • 16 Games to go
  • Giants 2 – D’backs 10
  • Cardinals 5 – Dodgers 2
  • Giants are 7.5 games in first place
  • Our magic number is 9
  • Following today’s game the Giants will not leave California for the rest of the regular season. Tonight we will travel back to San Francisco where we will play our final homestand, a 10-game set against Colorado (4 games, Monday-Thursday), San Diego (3 games next weekend) and Arizona (Sept. 25- 27). We will then go to San Diego (Sept. 28-30) and Los Angeles (Oct. 1-3) for the final road series.
  • Between a couple of triples, a grand slam and an amazing, end-of-the-world-single we have a bunch of photos from this road trip that didn’t make it into the daily blogs – Enjoy!

View Level Timeline – Part 4

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. Everything from 1987 to 1999 is on the banners for today.
