GIANTS MEDIA GUIDE


You may be alone
in your car,
but you’re never
alone on the road.

AT&T reminds you to keep your eyes on the road, not on


your phone. When you’re behind the wheel, nothing is
more valuable than your life, or the lives of others

EXECUTIVE BIOS

Laurence M. Baer PRESIDENT & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER


A fourth generation San Franciscan, Larry Baer has gained a national
reputation as one of professional sports’ leading visionaries. Baer joined the team
in 1992 as the executive vice president after he and Peter Magowan led the effort
to assemble a new ownership group and negotiate the sale that kept the Giants in
San Francisco. A limited partner of the ownership group, Baer was named chief
operating officer in May 1996, team president in October 2008 and CEO on January
1, 2012. In his first year as president and CEO, the Giants won their second World
2017 GIANTS

Willie Mays ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT

Regarded by many as the best all-around player in baseball history, Willie Mays
returned to San Francisco in 1986 and now enters his 32nd season in the Giants’
front office. In 1993, in one of his first public statements after assuming ownership
of the team, former Giants President and Managing General Partner Peter Magowan
announced that the franchise was signing Mays to a lifetime contract.
Magowan also announced in 1997 that the front entrance of the club’s new

2017 GIANTS
ballpark would feature a world-class statue of Mays and the official address of
the park would be 24 Willie Mays Plaza. The 86-year-old Mays serves as a Giant
emissary. He visits the Giants’ minor league teams, as well as Spring Training camp and attends nearly
every single Giants home game during the season. The Westfield, AL native also makes appearances
on behalf of the club at a variety of civic and charitable events throughout the Bay Area for the Giants
Community Fund. He has also made generous contributions to needy children throughout the country
through his own Say Hey Foundation charity.
During his 22-year Major League playing career, Mays was named Most Valuable Player twice, 11
years apart, first as a New York Giant and then as a San Francisco Giant. He holds the all-time record
for putouts by an outfielder, with a career total of 7,095. He compiled 3,283 hits, won 12 Gold Gloves and

OPPONENTS
appeared in 24 All-Star games. He was third on the all-time home run list with 660 until 2003 when his
godson, Barry Bonds, passed him. His career batting average was .302 and for eight consecutive years,
he drove in more than 100 runs a season. The “Say Hey Kid” was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1979,
the first year of his eligibility (the ninth player to make it on his first try). Mays’ uniform number, 24, has
been retired by the Giants, as he remains the franchise leader in games played (2,857), at-bats (10,477),
runs (2,011), hits (3,187), doubles (504), home runs (646), total bases (5,907) and extra base hits (1,289).
He was named team captain of the Giants prior to the 1961 season by manager Alvin Dark.
Mays was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama in 2015.

GIANTS HISTORY
He joined fellow Hall of Famers Ernie Banks, Yogi Berra and Stan Musial as the only baseball players
who have been awarded the Medal of Freedom. Mays has also received numerous honors as one of the
premier athletes of the past 100 years. The Sporting News ranked him second only to Babe Ruth among
the 100 greatest baseball players of the 20th century. ESPN listed him as eighth in their ranking of the
top 50 athletes of the century. In 2003, former Governor Gray Davis appointed Willie Mays to the State
Board of Directors of the California African American Museum. He spent part of his 85th birthday aboard
cable car No. 24, which was dedicated to him.
He is the spokesperson for The Institute on Aging in San Francisco as well as the President and CEO
of the Say Hey Foundation, supporting underprivileged youth. He is also a member of the Concordia Club

POSTSEASON HISTORY
and has recently re-signed with The Topps Company, Inc., an association that began in 1952, that pub-
lishes baseball cards. Mays has received honorary degrees from Dartmouth, Miles College, Ohio State
University, San Francisco State and Yale University.
Mays makes his home in Atherton.

Willie McCovey SENIOR ADVISOR

Willie McCovey, whose Hall of Fame playing career with the Giants spanned
four decades, enters his 18th season as senior advisor to the team.
McCovey, who had hit more home runs (521) than any other left-handed hitter
in National League history before Barry Bonds passed him in 2001, began his first AT&T PARK
formal association with the Giants’ current ownership group in 2000. He had pre-
viously made special public appearances on an ad hoc basis for the present and
previous administrations over the past several years, but had not held a formal
front office position with the team since 1986.
In honor of the Hall of Fame great, the portion of San Francisco Bay behind right field at AT&T Park
has been named “McCovey Cove.” In 2003, the Giants unveiled a statue of McCovey at China Basin Park,
which is located across from AT&T Park on the southern shoreline of McCovey Cove. He was honored
BASEBALL OPS, SCOUTING
& PLAYER DEVELOPMENT

during the Home Run Derby during the 2007 All-Star Game festivities.
In his current position, McCovey offers his expertise to Giants players when possible, appearing at
Spring Training and during the regular season. He also makes occasional speaking appearances, and
performs other valuable functions for the team.
One of the most respected and feared hitters in baseball during his 22-year career in the Majors,
McCovey was a six-time All-Star, ranks second to Lou Gehrig in career grand slams (18) and hit the
most homers (231) ever at Candlestick Park. “Stretch” also established a Major League record for most
seasons played (22) as a first baseman. In addition, he became the fifth player in MLB history to earn
back-to-back home run and RBI titles, hitting 36 homers and driving in 105 runs in 1968 and then captur-
ing NL Most Valuable Player honors with 45 home runs and 126 RBI in 1969.
McCovey, 80, has made an on-field appearance at the close of every season—with the exception of
a few recent years due to his knee ailments—to present the Willie Mac Award. The only Giants award
ever named after a former player, the Willie Mac Award was established in 1980 and is given to the
Giants player who best exemplifies the spirit and leadership consistently shown by McCovey throughout
his career.

SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, PLAYER PERSONNEL & SENIOR ADVISOR TO THE GENERAL MANAGER

A former American League Rookie Pitcher of the Year and 13-year Major
League veteran, Dick Tidrow embarks on his 25th year overall with the club.
Tidrow has had an integral role in helping the organization win three World

the 1994 campaign, serving as the club’s Major League scout for the American
League. He was promoted to Special Assistant to the General Manager in 1996,

current responsibilities include providing Major League player recommendations for trade and free
agent signings, overseeing the Giants’ minor league system and assisting in supervising the First-Year
Player Draft.
His judgment for talent, whether acquired or developed through the farm system, can be seen
throughout the roster of the Major League club, as he had a major hand in the teams drafting and devel-
opment of their homegrown talent. Of the players on the 2014 World Series 25-man roster, 13 were either

winning percentage in baseball over the past 10 seasons with a .552 organizational mark, largely due to
Tidrow’s tutelage of the club’s pitching prospects.
Prior to joining the Giants organization, Tidrow served as a special assignment scout with the New
York Yankees from 1985 through 1993. The former right-handed pitcher, nicknamed “Dirt,” enjoyed parts

the tenures of Dave Duncan, Mike Gallego and Dave McKay, who each spent 15 years with
Oakland as players and coaches. Young had spent 33 years in the Oakland organization,
which included 12 years as a player, eight years as a minor league coach and 13 years as
the Major League pitching coach.
Under Young’s guidance, the A’s finished second in the American League in ERA in three
straight seasons from 2012-14. The 2014 club posted a 3.22 ERA, which was seventh lowest
POSTSEASON HISTORY

in Oakland history and the lowest since 1990 (3.18). During his tenure as coach from 2004-
10, Oakland pitchers posted an AL-best 4.03 ERA and held opponents to an AL-low .257
average while allowing the fewest home runs (1,062) in the league.
During Young’s tenure as Oakland pitching coach, 13 A’s pitchers—Mark Mulder (2004),
Tim Hudson (2004), Justin Duchscherer (2005, 2008), Barry Zito (2006), Dan Haren (2007),
Andrew Bailey (2009), Trevor Cahill (2010), Ryan Cook (2012), Bartolo Colón (2013), Grant
Balfour (2013), Sean Doolittle (2014), Scott Kazmir (2014) and Sonny Gray (2015)—have
been selected to the American League All-Star team, with Mulder and Haren earning starts
in the Midsummer Classic. Closers Huston Street (2005) and Bailey (2009) also earned AL
Rookie of the Year honors.
AT&T PARK

Young began his coaching career in 1996 with the A’s affiliate in the Arizona Rookie
League. He spent three seasons in Scottsdale before he was named pitching coach at
Single-A Visalia in 1999. Young spent the next three years as the pitching coach at double-A
Midland. His first Midland staff compiled a 4.60 ERA, which was the lowest figure posted
by the club in 15 years. His 2001 staff bettered the previous year’s figure by 20 points, fin-
ishing with a 4.40 ERA, and in 2002 the RockHounds finished with a 3.88 ERA. Young was
promoted to triple-A Sacramento for the 2003 season and the River Cats posted the fourth
best ERA in the Pacific Coast League (3.90) en route to the PCL Championship.
BASEBALL OPS, SCOUTING
& PLAYER DEVELOPMENT

Young compiled a 69-53 record and a 4.31 ERA in 251 games, 162 starts, in an 11-year
Major League pitching career that included stints with Oakland (1983-91, 93), Kansas City
(1992) and the New York Yankees (1992). He was originally drafted by the A’s in the fourth
round of the 1981 June draft, making his major league debut in 1983. The left-hander went
13-9 with a 3.45 ERA in 1986, leading the team in victories and earning him an Opening Day
start in 1987. He matched his career best in wins in 1987, posting a 13-7 record and a 4.08
ERA in a career-high 31 starts. Young was also a member of the A’s starting rotation when
they won three consecutive American League pennants from 1988-90. He tossed two one-
hitters during his career: Oct. 5, 1986 against Kansas City and June 9, 1987 against Chicago.
Young graduated from Arthur Hill High School in Saginaw, Mich., where he also starred
as a quarterback, and attended Central Michigan University. In 1980, he pitched for the

• Struck out a career-best 14 batters June 23 vs. San Diego, but the Giants lost 3-2 in 11 innings...
it was the third time since 1900 that the Giants lost a game in which one of their pitchers struck
out 14 or more batters...Rube Marquard struck out 14 in an 8-7 loss to the Braves on Sept. 4,
1911 and Carl Hubbell struck out 15 Dodgers in a 3-2 loss on May 26, 1932 (Elias).

for the most by a Giants left-handed pitcher in SF-era history (since 1958).
• Struck out Colorado’s Brandon Barnes June 28 for his 1,000th career strikeout...at 25 years, 331

(one-hitter, 14 strikeouts) and his homer accounted for the only run of the game.

longest perfect-game bid had been 7.0 innings...he finished with his third career one-hitter.

• 2014: Posted one of the best seasons of his career, going 18-10 with a 2.98 ERA and 219
strikeouts, a record for a San Francisco left-handed pitcher...his 18 wins were the most by a

BASEBALL OPS, SCOUTING
& PLAYER DEVELOPMENT

Giants moved to San Francisco in 1958.


• He also became the third youngest left-hander to start a season opener in Giants franchise
history (since 1883)…only Ledell “Cannonball” Titcomb (21 years and 242 days of age on April
20, 1888 at Washington) and Mark Davis (23 years and 167 days of age on April 3, 1984 vs.
Chicago-NL) were younger than Bumgarner (courtesy of Bill Arnold).
• Hit his third career home run and his first career grand slam in his second at-bat off Colorado’s
Jorge De La Rosa on April 11 at AT&T Park...became just the second Giants pitcher to hit a

third time that the Giants hit two grand slams in a game since moving to San Francisco…the last
instance was Sept. 19, 1998 vs. Los Angeles-NL (the hitters were Bill Mueller and Jeff Kent)…
it also happened on April 26, 1970 vs. Montreal (Willie McCovey and Dick Deitz)…it was just
the second time in the Giants’ 132-year history they hit grand slams in consecutive innings of
the same game: Mueller and Kent did it against the Dodgers in 1998.
• Pitched a one-hitter and matched his career-high of 13 strikeouts in his start Aug. 26 vs. Colo-

Hal Schumacher won 23 games for the New York Giants in 1934 at the age of 23.
• Took a no-hitter into the sixth inning of his start on June 28 vs. Cincinnati, but allowed a leadoff
single to Ryan Hanigan to start the 6th, his only hit allowed in what was his first career complete
game and his first shutout in SF’s 5-0 win…extended the Giants’ team scoreless streak to 36.0
innings and put the Giants in the record books as it was the team’s fourth-consecutive shutout,
a new franchise record.

GIANTS HISTORY
• Signed a five-year extension through 2017 with a club/vesting option for 2018 and a club option
for 2019 on April 6...the 5-year extension covers Bumgarner through his arbitration years and
his first year of free agency (2017).

• 2011: Endured his worst start of his career and one of worst in Giants history on June 21 vs.
Minnesota...recorded just one out while allowing eight first inning runs...faced 10 batters and

out of the first inning.

• 2010: Earned his first Major League victory July 6 in Milwaukee after tossing 8.0-scoreless
innings and allowing only three hits in SF’s 6-1 win...according to Elias, only two other Giants
rookies pitched a game like that: Noah Lowry in 2004 when he tossed 9.0-shutout frames against
the Reds on Aug. 3 and Matt Cain, who accomplished it twice in 2006, tossing 9.0-scoreless
innings at Oakland on May 21 and blanking Colorado for 8.0 innings on Sept. 14.
