The Giants Community Fund is asking fans to support the Fund and its Junior Giants program by donating to the Stretch Drive, taking place July 18-21, during the Giants vs. New York Mets Series. The Stretch Drive will honor the legacy of Willie “Stretch” McCovey. Fans are asked to share memories of the late, great, Hall of Famer on social media using #McCoveyMemories. Fans who donate $44 will help to equip a Junior Giants player for an entire season. As a thank you for donating, donors will receive a commemorative McCovey bobblehead.
Fans who donate larger amounts will receive thank you gifts which can include an autographed bat, ball or jersey. Full details regarding donation levels are listed at sfgiants.com/stretchdrive
