Willie McCovey 1962 Game by Game Batting Logs

Willie McCovey appeared in 91 Major League games during the 1962 regular season. The chart below is a comprehensive analysis of the games McCovey appeared in, specifically relating to his 1962 hitting statistics. Notes: The Date / Box field has a link to the box score from the game being described. If the Date is followed by an asterisk (*), McCovey started during that game at the first position listed in the Position(s) column. Cumulative monthly totals are provided where applicable.

"This is the question I posed to Willie McCovey: You're the manager of the other team in a tie game with two outs and nobody on in the ninth. The batter is Willie McCovey, now... before I could finish, Willie broke in, 'I'd walk him.' Then he laughed. It's really no laughing matter to the San Francisco Giants' slugging first baseman, however. Because a lot of other managers would do the same thing." - Sportswriter Robert Markus in Baseball Digest (June 1971, Willie McCovey - Baseball's Most Feared Batter , Page 32)
