1989 Phoenix Firebird (ProCards)

The Phoenix Firebirds were the Giants AAA Team. Here's a great shot of pitching coach Marty DeMerritt.
 He's now a coach in the Rays system. Still pretty distinctive looking.
Charlie Hayes is best known as a Yankee, Phillie, or Rockie, but he started his career briefly playing for the Giants.
 The Yankees went eighteen years between World Championships, 1978-1996. Charlie Hayes was on the '96 team. His Firebirds teammate, Ron Davis, was on the '78 team.

  1. Given his competition for the 3B slot (Matt Williams), it's no surprise he didn't remain a Giant. On the other hand, he only had to beat out Hensley Meulens for the 3B spot in New York.

    Very interesting bit if tivia about Hayes and Davis.
