The San Francisco Giants received some sad news over the weekend as former athletic trainer Barney Nugent passed away Saturday at the age of 61.

Nugent was the Giants athletic trainer for 11 seasons from 1993-2003 and died in Massachusetts after a short battle with cancer.

Nugent was a mentor and dear friend to current Giants athletic trainer Dave Groeschner.

Groeschner and Giants general manager Brian Sabean will attend Nugent's memorial service in Chelsea, Mass on Wednesday.
