"Baseball and the San Francisco Giants have lost one of their greatest treasures. Bill Rigney, along with Horace Stoneham, Chub Feeney and Russ Hodges, personified the Giants when they moved West in 1958. He was our first manager in San Francisco, and he had remained our last link to that era of our franchise's history. Rig was a baseball man through and through. He was a wonderful storyteller and a warm, thoughtful human being.'' - Giants Owner Peter Magowan (02-21-2001)
