SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Giants legend and current club special assistant Will Clark was greeted with birthday wishes Thursday, and they weren't standard birthday wishes. William Nuschler Clark, after all, was born in New Orleans on March 13, 1964, or 50 years ago.

When asked in the Giants clubhouse how he felt now that he's reached the half-century mark, Clark smiled.

"Everything still hurts like it did yesterday," Clark said. "Forty-nine is the same as 50."
