Phil Lesh and Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead have nominated San Francisco Giants third base coach Tim Flannery as Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year. Their essay in support of Flannery, which is on the magazine’s website, mentions singing the national anthem with Flannery at various Giants games.

The musicians say they nominated him because he put together benefit concerts for Giants fan Bryan Stow, who was attacked at Dodger Stadium in 2011. Lesh and Weir write, “Tim approached Bryan’s cause much in the way that we would have, and he taught us a little something about Giants fans. They’re more than just yahoo baseball fans. There’s a lot of heart there. If you scratched beneath the surface of any fan pool in the U.S., probably anywhere in the world, you could find that. But we saw it first-hand here thanks to Tim.”
