Fans left flowers and mementos at McCovey's statue alongside AT&T Park, and the cove that now bears his name.
They're remembering McCovey not only for his hall of fame career but his class and graciousness off the field, as well. That's how former Giants outfielder and Vallejo Native Mike Felder remembers the man known as Stretch.

Felder won the Willie Mac Award in 1992, which honors the most inspirational Giant.
