Will Clark Was The Best, Part I

The scene: the 1989 NLCS. Giants v. Cubs. Will Clark at the plate versus Mitch “the Wild Thing” Williams. 1-1 tie ballgame.

Robby Thompson! Brett Butler! Candy Maldonado! Roger Craig! Real Fans! The ‘Stick! Hummm baby!

The game seemed so much more pure back then, no?

    Thank you for this. You’re like the bay area you tube kanye west– digging through crates of clips, finding the lost gems with soul, creating good vibes for all to enjoy.

  2. Hey Say Hey. You inspired me to write my own Will Clark post. Thanks for the reminder how great Will was…

    Hall-Of-Shame racist,that is.(Good ol’ boy Willie
    once called the nephew of a team-mate the “N” word,
    and allegedly wore a Tshirt in the Giants clubhouse
    inscribed,”If the South woulda won [the U.S. Civil
    War].we’d-a all been better off.”Well,Will,you ‘necks would PROBABLY STILL be trying to defend slavery,if not physically keep slaves if Bobby Lee and the boys
    had beaten U.S. Grant’s lads).
