Nugent was San Francisco’s trainer for 11 seasons from 1993-2003 - during much of the home run chase by slugger Barry Bonds - before retiring to Arizona. He served as a mentor and dear friend to current Giants athletic trainer Dave Groeschner, who called Nugent “a good friend and still a Giant ‘til the very end, he loved the Giants.”
Nugent had previously worked in the Red Sox and Phillies organizations.
Nugent was born April 27, 1952, in Chelsea. He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Denise.
