IN HONOR OF BRETT BUTLER

The man who was one of the best lead off hitters during the 1980s and 1990s…

The man who had to fill Chili Davis’ shoes after the 1987 season and did so admirably…

The man who led the National League in runs in his first year with the Giants and led the NL in hits in 1990…

The man who led off Game 1 of the 1989 NLCS with a single and scored in the first off of Greg Maddux to send the Giants on their way…

A solid all around player who amased 2,375 hits in his career…

And a solid man who beat a form of cancer while with the Dodgers to return the same season he received treatments…

And did NOT star in Grace Under Fire

In his honor we announce

THE GIANTS MAGIC NUMBER IS 2!
