Hank Aaron’s baseball homes were Milwaukee and Atlanta, but he transcended the game and was a man that every town across the country could embrace. That includes San Francisco, where he was honored and adored as if he were the city’s own. From Willie Mays to Willie McCovey to Felipe Alou to Dusty Baker to Barry Bonds to Duane Kuiper to all fans of baseball, Aaron made an impact unlike any other as a noble figure who could be worshiped as an American hero without a second thought.
Utilityman Daniel Robertson has agreed to a $900,000, one-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers that allows him to earn an additional $400,000 in performance bonuses. Robertson batted .333 with no homers and two RBIs in 17 games with the San Francisco Giants last season while making appearances at shortstop, second base, third base and the outfield. ''I feel like the game's kind of evolving that way,'' Robertson said Thursday.
episodes of the 2021 Willie McCovey Memorial Prospect List are officially in the book, and rounding out the top 20 San Francisco Giants prospects is a player who spent a little bit of time at the MLB level in each of the past two seasons: outfielder Jaylin Davis. Davis just snuck into the top 20, winning CPL #20 by just four votes. He falls eight spots from his placement on 2020, and understandably so.
