ALUMNI NEWS: Former Mustang, Grant McCray makes the Giants All-Star team 2022 - (12/12/22)
- Michael Avallone,

McCray's season began with an MVP-caliber performance in the California League and ended with him serving as a catalyst for the Northwest League-champion Emeralds. It was quite a performance from a player who entered 2022 having played 69 of his first 93 games in Rookie-level competition. The No. 4 Giants prospect tore up the Cal League with a .908 OPS, including 51 extra-base hits, 21 homers, and 35 stolen bases in 106 games before his promotion to Eugene. McCray's name was all over the organizational leaderboard, which he paced in total bases (251), hits (141), runs (104), walks (67), extra-base hits (55), and triples (nine). Defensively, the 22-year-old plays a smooth center field and has a strong and accurate arm, evidenced by his 11 assists.
