Part 2 With Reporter Chris Haft On His Giants Book “If These Walls Could Talk”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on!

Join us for Part 2 of our conversation with Chris Haft from We chat with the Giants beat reporter and author about his new Giants book If These Walls Could Talk.

Haft talked to The Sports Virus about the  World Series era, plus Candlestick Park memories: …“For me it was a magical place, as crazy as that sounds because, to quote Dave Righetti, that’s where the Giants played… It was dreadful, let’s face it. It was cold, it was inadequate as far as a lot of amenities goes, but it was what we had…(One of his favorite memories came in 1980) Willie McCovey, who had announced his retirement about a week earlier, won the game (against the Dodgers) with a pinch-hit double. Afterward there was a very, very long, very, very loud standing ovation for McCovey and people prolonged the ovation until he came out and took a curtain call. He was really reluctant to do that, but he did it and it created a great moment in San Francisco Giants history.”
