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”.

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. Our SF Hall of Famers leading up to the Roger Craig era is our focus today.
