Giants Wall of Fame #19 -- November 2, 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 outfielder Marvin Benard, one of the Fighting Hydrants. He was an excellent pinch hitter and was famous for his batting helmet, which got progressively more gunky as the season went along.

Occupy Oakland organized a general strike today.  It wasn't a complete shutdown, but it will be interesting to see what effect it had.
