Dave LaPoint (#71T) was 7-17 with a 3.57 ERA in his only season with the Giants.

Jim Gott (#40T) was 7-10 with a 3.88 ERA in 26 starts for the Giants.

Scott Garrelts (#38T) was the Giants' representative to the 1985 All Star Game. He was 9-6 with 13 saves and a 2.30 ERA. He's wearing some killer glasses!

Atlee Hammaker (#674) was 5-12 with an ERA of 3.74 in 29 starts in 1985. He wasn't quite the same after being shelled in the 1983 All Star Game.

Jeff Robinson (#592) pitched in 8 games with no record and a 5.11 ERA.

Mark Davis (#541) was 5-12 with 7 saves and a 3.54 ERA in 77 games.

Jeff Cornell (#514) didn't pitch for the Giants in 1985. He pitched in his last major league game on August 16, 1984. He started with AAA Phoenix and was released on April 30, 1985. He hooked on with the Chicago Cubs and pitched in their system in 1985 and 1986, but he didn't make it back to the majors.

Frank Williams (#487) pitched in 49 games and had an ERA of 4.19 and a record of 2-4.

Gary Lavelle (#462) didn't pitch for the Giants in 1985. He was traded to Toronto for Jim Gott and two minor leaguers before the season.

Bill Laskey (#331) was 5-11 with a 3.55 ERA in 19 starts.

Randy Lerch (#103) didn't pitch for the Giants in 1985. He was granted free agency after the 1984 season and signed with the Philadelphia Phillies in May 1985.
There are a lot of cards with green folding chairs in the background. It might be Scottsdale Stadium. The Giants started training there in 1984.

Mike Krukow (#74) was 8-11 with a 3.38 ERA in 28 starts in 1985.

Greg Minton (#45) was 5-4 with a 3.54 ERA and had 4 saves in 68 games.
