As March Madness concluded last night with a close fought game between North Carolina and Gonzaga, a similar battle was waged between two San Francisco Giants legends.

Willie Mays and Buster Posey, two of the greatest players in San Francisco Giants franchise history, faced off in the championship game of #SFGiantsMadness.

The previous two seasons, Mays had faced off against his godson, Barry Bonds in the finals. Posey, however, took on the home run king and defeated him in an upset in the Final Four matchup. Willie McCovey took on Mays to round out the Final Four.

Posey, who was ranked as a 3 seed heading into the tournament, had a tremendous run this year, as it is clear that Giants fans love their catcher.

There is still time to vote for Mays or Bonds today if you hurry. Just click on the Tweet below.
