IN HONOR OF MEL OTT

The first National Leaguer to hit 500 homers…

A devastating power hitter despite his small 5’9″ frame…

Would be the envy of Sabrmetric fans because along with his homers, he also constantly was among the league leaders in walks…

Posted a 1.222 OPS, hit .389 with 2 homers in 1933 World Series win for the Giants…

One of those homers came in the top of the 10th of Game 5 that put the Giants ahead in the clinching game…

And has his number retired in San Francisco despite never having played in the city…

In his honor…
THE MAGIC NUMBER IS 4!
