Will Clark Jersey 22 Retirement -- July 30, 2022

Tonight before the game against the Cubs, the Giants retired Will Clark's jersey, number 22. There was a good crowd and lots of former teammates were on the field. The Hall of Famers are getting old, so they sent messages. Clark gave a firey speech. The Giants won 5-4, but Thairo Estrada got hit in the head by a pitched ball in the fifth. He was on the ground while they checked him, but he was able to leave the field on his feet, with some help.

Will Clark was a brilliant first baseman and a power hitter. He played for the 1984 Olympic team. In 1987 he jumped from AA to the majors and helped the Giants reach the playoffs. In 1989 he helped the Giants reach the World Series. He hated losing. 

I took this photo of a portion of the Giants Wall of Fame on 29-September-2008.
