Willie McCovey by MercenaryGraphics Willie McCovey by MercenaryGraphics
The San Francisco Giants gave opponents “The Willies” from 1959-72, when Willie Mays and Willie “Stretch” McCovey comprised the core of their offensive attack. McCovey, a fellow native of the Mobile, Ala., area, joined Mays and the Giants in 1959.
By the late 1960s, McCovey was one of the premier power hitters in the National Leauge, leading the league in homers and RBI. He spent three seasons with the Padres and had a short stint with Oakland before returning to the Giants from 1977-80.
