Important: Curse of Eddie Grant

A replica plaque in the memory of Edward Leslie Grant, a New York Giants utility player who was the first MLB player killed in WWI, was recently erected at the MoCovey Cove gate.

Apparently, the original plaque was lost during the move from New York to San Francisco and the Giants have been cursed ever since.

It is imperative that every die-hard Giants fan enter AT&T Park via the McCovey Cove gate and pay homage to the plaque.
