Giants Wall of Fame #7 -- April 21, 2009

In September, 2008 the Giants unveiled their Wall of Fame along the King Street side of the ballpark, whatever it is called this week. This set of plaques in honors two Giants whom I remember well.

Jack Clark played for the Giants during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Jack the Ripper was a wonderful hitter. He was forced to play right field until Willie MacCovey retired. Clark was a good first baseman. I was sad when he left the team.

Johnnie Lemaster was a shortstop who was not as bad as many people said. He got booed a lot, but I saw him make a lot of good plays. He never did hit much.

I took the photo on 29-September-2008 (3081).
