KRON4 Morning Buzz: Remembering Giants legend Willie McCovey


Trending today on KRON4 Morning Buzz — remembering the life and career of Giants legend Willie McCovey, plus the Raiders and Niners play in the toilet bowl and Draymond Green says “vote for me!”

The baseball world has lost a great San Francisco Giants legend — Willie McCovey died at the age of 80. He made his Major League debut back in 1959. He had 18 grand slams, the most in national league history, and 521 career runs. In 1986 he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. 

Now the 1 and 7 49ers are playing in the toilet bowl with the Raiders and whoever wins tonight might flush their chances of getting the number one draft pick. 

Warriors are the opposite — they made it 8 and 1 last night after beating the Pelicans on Halloween. 

Draymond’s on a mission. He’s campaigning to win “Defensive Player of the Year,” probably because if he can reclaim that title, he’ll be eligible for a 5-year, $235 million extension. 

Due to Steph Curry’s contract, Golden State can sign only one more player  to a super max, and Draymond wants it to be home. 

Meanwhile in Boston, Red Sox fans threw beers at the team during the World Series victory parade, with one of the cans even dinging the trophy. 

Outfielder Mookie Betts says he spent most of the parade ducking so he wouldn’t get hit.
