San Francisco Giants: History


The Giants were knowns as The Gothams of New York until they changed their name to the New York Giants and after their move to San Francisco in 1957, they came to be known as the San Francisco Giants. During their time in New York, they won 5 World Series and 17 National League pennants. The Giants, along with their rival Los Angeles Dodgers, became the first Major League Baseball teams to play on the West Coast. On April 15, 1958, the Giants played their first game in San Francisco, defeating the former Brooklyn and now Los Angeles Dodgers, The Giants struggled to sustain consistent success in their first 50 years in San Francisco.


San Francisco Giants In Recent Years


The Giants' rivalry with the Los Angeles Dodgers, one of the longest-standing and most famed rivalries in American sports, began in New York and continued when both teams relocated to the West Coast in 1958. The Giants also lost the 2002 World Series to the Anaheim Angels. Barry Bonds hit 73 home runs in the 2001 season breaking the record for the most home runs in a season which was a major highlight for the club and in 2007 he surpassed Hank Aaron’s record of 755 homers. Bonds finished his career with 762 home runs, which is still the MLB record. The Giants won three World Series championships in 2010, 2012, and 2014, giving the team eight total World Series titles, including the five won as the New York Giants. As of now, The Giants have played in the World Series 20 times, an NL record. In 2014, the Giants won their then-record twenty-third National League pennant; this mark has since been equaled and then eclipsed by the rival Dodgers, who as of 2020 lay claim to 24 NL crowns. The Giants' 8 World Series Victories have put them in the 2nd position in the national league for the most world series wins and in the 5th position in the whole league.
