IN HONOR OF BILL TERRY


The greatest first baseman the Giants ever had before moving to San Francisco…

The man who in 1930 batted .401, had an OPS of 1.071, hit 23 homers with 129 RBI while striking out only 33 times. A good guy to have on your fantasy team…

The man who had the unenviable job of replacing John McGraw as Giants manager…

In his first full season as manager he led the Giants to the 1933 World Series, which they won against Washington 4 games to 1. Not a bad start…

He would later manage the Giants to the 1936 and 1937 National League pennants…

He ran a car dealership and a minor league franchise when he hung up his spikes…

The Hall of Famer and the last National Leaguer to hit over .400 has his number retired at AT&T Park…

In his honor I announce

THE GIANTS MAGIC NUMBER IS 3.
