Giants Wall of Fame #18 -- September 28, 2011
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 plaque was added on 27-August-2011 to honor right-handed pitcher Jason Schmidt. Schmidt was one of the Giants' best pitchers from 2001-2006. His teammates called him Shrek.
The Giants lost their last game today. The weather was warm. They finished the season at 86-76, in second place. They would have done better if they could have kept Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, Sergio Romo and many others healthy. It would have been nice if they could have hit more to support their excellent pitchers. Pat Burrell has probably played his last game for the Giants. I don't know if Carlos Beltran will be back.
We were only able to get tickets for two games. It should be easier to buy tickets next season.
