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.

It took a small army of people to get the Giants Clubhouse ready on September 22 to celebrate clinching of the NL West. Anything that can be removed from the room is taken into the back and plastic is used to protect everything else from the Mumm Napa “spray”. Through it all, everyone keeps an eye on the game to make sure everything is ready right after the final out.
