San Francisco Giants: Top 10 Second Baseman in Giants’ History
By Daniel Sperry
3 of 11
Number 9: Tito Fuentes (1965-1974), 8.2 WAR
Fuentes was a fantastic Giant, and really a historic ballplayer in his own right. While he was only worth a win per season he was with the Giants, Fuentes still left a lasting legacy. His bat was OK, amassing 1000 hits on the nose in his time as a Giant, but he did set the National League record for fielding percentage in a season back in 1973.
Fuentes was a great Giant overall, and still is with the team in the broadcasting capacity. Fuentes was inducted into the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame, and the Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum Hall of Fame.
While his numbers as a Giant don’t blow you away, his overall impact on the franchise is more than most on this list.
