As a former star for the San Francisco Giants, Will Clark was a natural fit to serve as the guest speaker for the Chico Nuts Spring Fever fundraiser. He told some fun baseball stories and talked about wanting to be there to help out.
Clark had previously spoken at the event in 2009. He was well-received again, with a sold-out crowd of 600 people packing the Chico Elks Lodge.
Clark was able to recall things like his favorite at-bats and some of the practical jokes teammates played on him during his career. He also participated in a question and answer session, which mostly centered on advice to youth players.
Clark was a six-time All-Star, earning five trips during his time with the Giants. He was also a clutch postseason performer and was named 1989 National League Championship Series MVP.
Clark went on in his career to play for the Texas Rangers, Baltimore Orioles and St. Louis Cardinals. He is a member of the San Francisco Giants Wall of Fame and still serves as an advisor to the team today.
Clark was also a great amateur player at Mississippi State and was part of the College Baseball Hall of Fame's inaugural class. He competed for the 1984 U.S. Olympic Team and won the Golden Spikes Award as the best player in college baseball in 1985.
