Format: Paperback
I love this book! If you are an SF Giants fan, or just a baseball fan in general, you'll enjoy Fifty Years by the Bay. Author Chuck Nan has really capsulized the SF Giants and their half-century in SF with great stories, stats and facts. I totally recommend this book!

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Joseph Daniello on March 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
Although the 1958 Giants were a little ahead of my time, author Steve Bitker really brought the Giants to life with his narrative of this historic team entering a new city. The real gem of this book, however, was Bitker's interviews with the members of the team. I really enjoyed reading first-hand accounts of players like Mike McCormick, Willie Kirkland, Leon Wagner, Stu Miller and yes, Willie Mays, etc. -- all players that I followed in the 1960s. Each player had his own unique insights on the team, the sport and his own life that really made me feel like I knew these guys. A must-have book not only for just Giants fans, but for baseball fans.
