#FarewellCandlestick: The 100 Greatest Moments in Candlestick Park History #91

#92 is here.

#91 July 11, 1962 Stu Miller Blown off the Mound

Willie Mays doubled home the tying run and then scored the winning run in extra innings, giving the NL the win at the first All Star Game ever held at Candlestick - and another Giant, Stu Miller, infamously got blown off the Candlestick mound.

If not for Mays, this would rank with the other All Star Game, but that Mays was the star in a close game gives this a boost.  The remaining 90 slots, spoiler alert, will be either Giants or Niners wins.  If you're looking for Leonard Marshall essentially ending Joe Montana's Niners career, that's not this list.

#90 is tomorrow.
