The first standout catcher of the San Francisco era, Haller spent the first seven seasons of his 11-year career with the Giants.
He took over as the primary catcher in 1962 and turned in a breakout season, posting a 140 OPS+ with 18 home runs and 55 RBI in just 332 plate appearances for 3.5 WAR.
He hit a career-high 27 home runs in 1966, which was the first of three straight years that he earned a spot on the NL All-Star team, only two of which came while he was playing for the Giants.
Haller was traded to the Dodgers prior to the 1968 season in exchange for second baseman Ron Hunt and backup infielder Nate Oliver. Hunt was good for 9.8 WAR in his three seasons with the Giants, so the trade proved beneficial.
