Abstract:

100 Things Giants Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die will help fans of San Francisco's team get the most out of being a fan.

Numbers with huge impact, such as 44, 762, and 1954; nicknames such as 'Big Mac' and 'the Dominican Dandy'; plus memorable moments like the Basket Catch, singular achievements, and signature calls all highlight the list of 100.
