NY/SF Giants best players all-time: No. 21-Will Clark
Will Clark is definitely a fan favorite in the San Francisco area due to his superb play in his Giants career at first base.
Nicknamed “Will the Thrill,” he had a career batting average of .303 with over 2,170 hits and 284 home runs in four different uniforms.
But Clark was certainly known for his career with the San Francisco Giants from 1986-1993. To start off his successful career, Clark hit over .300 in four of his first eight seasons, in addition, to four top-five MVP finishes in his Giants career.
Not only was he a five-time All-Star, but he was also remarkably durable. In seven of his eight seasons, he played in at least 130 games, and in four of those eight seasons, he played in at least 150 games.
Clark has not yet been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame but I do think he will have a good shot with the veterans committee.
But, he has been voted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame (2006), the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame (2004), the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame (2007), and then he got into the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame in 2008.
