Estes had his best season as a professional in 1997, when he went 19-5 with a 3.18 ERA for the San Francisco Giants. He was selected to the NL All-Star team during this season. He also has 4 career home runs and 28 RBIs, including a grand slam in 2000.
Before Madison Bumgarner in 2014, Shawn Estes had the distinction of being the first pitcher in Giants franchise history to hit a grand slam (on May 24, 2000), even scoring two more runs in the 18-0 game.
