A Wave Good-bye to jclarkbaker

After 13 very successful seasons, owner jclarkbaker has decided to step down as owner of the San Francisco Giants. "jclark" as he's been called, stepped down in order to reduce the number of teams that he owns. Jclark now owns just two teams - both the Boston RedSox in the Major Leagues and in Kinsella League. Overall, jclark has played in 25 seasons of HBD, winning 53% of his games (2152-1898). His teams have made the playoffs 15 of the 25 seasons and he has won one World Series Title (his Giants won the title in Season 10).

In this particular world, jclark took over the Giants in Season 2 and had an amazing run. After getting his feet under him with a few .500 seasons, the Giants took off with a 105 win season in Season 5. That started a run of 5 straight 100-win seasons and 11 straight division titles. Amazingly, the Giants team payroll never exceeded $92 million. Overall in the Majors, jclark was 1244-862 (.594) with an average payroll of just $78 million.

Everyone in Majors wishes jclark good luck in the rest of his career at HBD. And there is one positive of jclark's departure. He is 128-95 againt my teams.
