RIP Willie

Growing up in Nor Cal this extremely sad for me. My two favorite teams were the Giants and Pirates. My dad would take me to the games. I remember one Pirate/Giant game. Imagine seeing Mays, McCovey, Marical, Clemente and Stargell. In that game both McCovey and Stargell hit long homers. Although Stargell’s was longer. If they had played in today’s Giants Park they both would have been deep into McCovey cove. Rest In Peace Willie.
