Giants Wall of Fame #8 -- June 20, 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 four Giants whom I remember well.

Vida Blue was a brilliant pitcher, who was the subject of a huge trade with the Oakland Athletics during one of their regular fire sales. Greg Minton, the Moon Man, was a left-handed relief pitcher. Chili Davis was an outfielder with a wonderful attitude. Jeffrey Leonard, Hac Man, who wore number 00, should be a member of the Cool Hall of Fame. He could hit.

I took the photo on 29-September-2008 (3080).
