    Undoubtedly the most popular ball player to play for both the Oakland A’s and San Francisco Giants, Vida appears on Giants Pregame and post game TV and radio shows, partnered with former teammate William Van Landingham. Learned a lot about pitching from listening tothem.

    Today’s the birthday of Vida Blue,
    Louisiana Lightning he threw,
    Was both Giant and A,
    Beloved both sides of Bay,
    Vida Blue, happy birthday to you.
