Meet Me At 3rd & King



Theme by Go-Crazy.

The Alou brothers are undoubtedly a part of baseball history, let alone Giants history.

During a Sept. 10, 1963 game against the Mets, the three Alou brothers became the only three brothers in baseball history to bat in the same half-inning. Five days later, they occupied all three spots in the Giants’ outfield for the first and only all-brother outfield in big-league history. The three Alou brothers would collect 5,094 combined hits over their careers, beating out Joe, Dom and Vince DiMaggio for the best three-brother total of all time. (Yahoo)

Today, middle brother Matty passed away in his native Dominican Republic at the age of 72.

Orlando Cepeda: "I lost a great friend. We were roommates many times with the Giants. He was a very gracious man, and a tremendous baseball player."

President of Leones del Escogido (Brandon Belt’s current Winter Ball team): "Dominican baseball in general, and the Leones del Escogido, in particular, has lost one of the most emblematic figures and an extraordinary human being."
