Giants catcher Nick Hundley honored with Willie Mac Award

SAN FRANCISCO – The Willie Mac Award is bestowed on the Giants player who most inspires the clubhouse with his positive attitude, tireless work ethic and performance on the field.

This year, being inspirational was an impossible task. But Nick Hundley managed it well, and the Giants honored their backup catcher with their highest honor prior to Friday night’s game against the San Diego Padres.

If true character emerges in times of struggle, Hundley showed his stripes time and time again this season.

“It’s somebody that inspires everybody else,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “It’s an honor when you look back at who’s won it. How they come to the park, their attitude, how they play the game, the type of teammate they are – it all goes into it.

“The person who wins it every year is very well thought of.”
