In 1998, I was at a Giants game at Candlestick, watching the home team take on the Rangers with a San Francisco friend and his son. The boy, also named Jay, loved Will Clark. When Clark was introduced, my friend's son booed him. I asked him why, and he said, "Because he's with another team."
Well, hopefully all such feelings are gone, because the Thrill is back.
I'm sure Giants fans have been thinking about their favorite Clark moments. Geez, where do you begin? His pennant-winning hit in 1989 wrapped us in long-awaited glory, that's for sure, and his torrid bat against the Cubs, including his grand slam in Game One are unforgettable.
