Longtime Giant and fan favorite J.T. Snow joined the San Francisco Giants front office in December, 2006, after retiring from a 15-year big league career. The six-time Gold Glove first baseman has a wide variety of duties in his role, including personal appearances, broadcasting on the radio side, serving as an instructor during Spring Training, a roving instructor for the minor league clubs and advising general manager Brian Sabean on an as-needed basis.
Snow, who spent nine seasons in a Giants uniform from 1997-2005, helped San Francisco to four postseason appearances during his tenure before completing his career with the Boston Red Sox in 2006. He and Hall of Famer Willie McCovey are the only Giants first basemen to start nine consecutive Opening Days since the club moved to San Francisco in 1958.
The Long Beach, CA, native owned a .268 lifetime average with 189 home runs and 877 RBI over 1,715 career games for the Yankees (1992), Angels (1993-96), Giants (1997-2005) and Red Sox (2006).
Snow, who is one of three players to win the coveted "Willie Mac Award" twice in his career (1997 and 2004) along with Mike Krukow and Bengie Molina, makes his home in Emerald Hills, CA…he has one child, 16-year-old son Shane (Dec. 16, 1997).
