Game of my Life: San Francisco Giants
Memorable Stories of Giants Baseball, 2nd Edition

Matt Johanson

From the first San Francisco Giants game at Seals Stadium in 1958 through the team's glorious and remarkable world championship in 2010, Johanson recalls the greatest games chosen by Giants heroes, both famous and obscure. Orlando Cepeda breaks into the majors with a key home run. Willie Mays drills four homers in a game while sick to his stomach. Felipe Alou prays for a ninth-inning miracle to win the pennant. Brian Wilson fights for the last outs needed to clinch a long-awaited World Series championship.

Experience the exceptional moments of fan favorites, including Will Clark, Rich Aurilia, Rob Nenn, J.T. Snow, Kirk Rueter, Robby Thompson, Rod Beck, Mike Krukow, Jeremy Affeldt and more, described in their own words as only they remember these thrilling games. Also includes players' games of most personal significance: some heartwarming, some tearful,  and some almost unbelievably magical. This book brings the rich and storied history of the S.F. Giants, their most thrilling games, and colorful personalities together like never before.

"Johanson has carefully recreated the games and, more importantly, captured the memories of the players involved. Any Giants fan will cherish this walk back through time."
