First Base: Willie McCovey
Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1986, “Stretch” played 19 years with the Giants, and was the most feared slugger of his era. He hit 469 home runs with the club, drove in 1388 runs, and won the Rookie of the Year award in 1959 while playing in only 52 games. The 6-time All-Star won the MVP award in 1969, and is, was, and always will be an icon to San Francisco Giants fans who were able to watch him. There are other very good first basemen who have played for the Giants over the years, but the conversation starts and stops with McCovey. I mean, there’s a cove named after him!
