- It really is too bad the Giants couldn't keep Gary Matthews. He was a good one
- Matthews made his debut on September 6, 1972 (my 6th birthday)
- Gary batted .279 with 20 HR and 84 RBI in 116 games in 1975.
- Gary had a home plate collision with Johnny Bench on April 22. Bench played with the injury through the 1975 season and had shoulder surgery after the season.
- Matthews was injured after fighting (perhaps playfully) with teammate Derrel Thomas on June 1. Gary missed six weeks with a broken thumb
