The San Francisco Giants franchise has been around a long time, all the way back to the New York Gothams of 1883. Players have come, players have gone, but there have been a select few that have remained dear to the hearts of Giants fans due to their unwavering loyalty to the orange and black.
This week’s article focuses on Matt Cain and the five most loyal Giants. Considering that Cain is a “gimme,” and I do not yet consider him one of the “most loyal” Giants yet, that leaves me with only five places to fill.
Unfortunately, this list will not be able to accommodate consummate Giants like New York great Carl Hubbel, Vida Blue (who came back to finish his career as a “Real G”), Rich Aurilia and JT Snow (who both came back to finish as Giants), Juan Marichal (perhaps the best pitcher in team history), or recently Ryan Vogelsong (whose resurgence shows that second chances can work).
There are some all time greats on this list, however, so enjoy!
