Robb Nen Day 2005 7-9-05


Tribute to Robb Nen
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - The San Francisco Giants will honor the franchise's all-time saves leader Robb Nen, who retired this winter, in ceremonies prior to their Saturday, July 9 contest versus the St. Louis Cardinals at SBC Park, the club announced today. Nen amassed a franchise-record 206 saves during his six-season tenure with the Giants, during which he helped lead the team to the 2002 World Series and the 2000 National League West crown. One of the game's most dominant closers, the three-time All Star ranks 13th on the all-time saves list with 314 rescues over his 12-year career.

"Robb was a real leader in the clubhouse and was a key force in making the Giants one of the best teams in baseball for the seven years that he was here," said Giants President and Managing General Partner Peter Magowan. "He was a key ingredient of the Florida Marlins 1997 World Series Championship and no one will forget his heroic effort in 2002 when he pitched through so much pain to help the Giants reach the seventh game of the World Series. He was also a tremendous representative for the organization off the field, and we look forward to recognizing Robb for his many achievements."

The right hander with the distinctive toe tap became the youngest pitcher to reach the 300-save plateau when he accomplished the feat at the age of 32, securing an 11-10 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 6, 2002. Nen finished the Giants' pennant-winning campaign in 2002 with 43 saves to become just the fourth pitcher in Major League history to have four separate 40-save campaigns.

Originally a 32nd-round pick by the Rangers in the 1987 draft, the San Pedro, CA native went on to post a 45-42 lifetime ledger with 314 saves (368 chances) and a [sign in to see URL] ERA over 643 big league games (four starts) for Texas (1993), Florida (1993-97) and San Francisco (1998-2004).

Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.
