Bill pitched 14 years professionally, notably with the San Francisco Giants, Cleveland Indians and Montreal Expos. Bill led the Giants in wins, ERA and most innings pitched in 1982 and 1983. He received the Rookie Right Handed Pitcher of the Year Award from Baseball Digest and Topps Baseball Cards in 1982. He was elected into the City of Toledo and Woodward High School Hall of Fame in 2002.

Bill has also been the coordinator for the San Francisco Giants Fantasy Camp for the past 12 years.


Vida Blue's 17-year career he pitched for the Oakland Athletics from 1969–1977, the San Francisco Giants from 1978–1981 and 1985–1986, and the Kansas City Royals from 1982–1983. Blue was the recipient of the American League Cy Young Award, as well as the Most Valuable Player Award in 1971. A six-time All-Star, Blue is the first of only four pitchers in major league history to start the All-Star Game for both the American League and the National League.

Vida Blue has most recently made a name for himself in the San Francisco Bay Area by donating his time to many charitable causes, promoting youth, education, and baseball in the inner city of San Francisco and Oakland, predominantly with Northern Light School through the "Vida Blue Field of Dreams", a youth sports complex built on Northern Light School's grounds in 2012 to provide a safe place for Northern Light School and Bay Area children to play.
