1980 Headline:  McCovey Homers For The Last Time!!!

On this day in 1980, slugger Willie McCovey hit the final home run of his amazing career.  Spanning 22 years, McCovey blasted 521 round-trippers during his playing days.  His 521 ranks on the all-time list at 18th place in major league history.

The shot, a blast off of Expos’ hurler Scott Sanderson, came in the 4th inning of the ballgame and was the difference in the Giant’s 3-2 win that day.

Happy Anniversary Mr. McCovey!!
