One of the elder franchises in baseball, the Giants have played great baseball in New York and in San Francisco. World Series champs in New York in 1905, 1921, 1922, 1933 and 1954, the team has yet to win a World Series in San Francisco. Featuring such amazing players as Christy Matthewson, Mel Ott, Willie Mays and Barry Bonds, the Giants have called some of the very best their own.
The Giants were first known as the New York Gothans in 1883 and 1884 before assuming the Giant name.
