About the San Francisco Giants
San Francisco Giants Tickets
If we’re talking MLB history, we’re talking San Francisco Giants. As one of the oldest teams in the league, the Giants have dominated baseball from coast to coast throughout for years. Simply put: they're a force to be reckoned with – boasting 28 National League wins, 20 World Series runs, and 8 championships.
The Early Days: 1883 to 1958
The team was founded as the New York Gothams in
The name stuck, and the New York Giants would go on to play a major role in the early history of the MLB. Some of baseball’s most dramatic moments have come from the Giants, including 1951’s “shot heard ’round the world,” when Bobby Thompson’s walk-off home run in the ninth inning won the team the pennant. Or “The Catch,” when Willie Mays made nabbed an over-the-shoulder fly ball in Game One of the 1954 World Series against the Cleveland Indians.
Pulling Up Stakes and Heading West
The 1958-59 season would be the last time the Giants would grace the East Coast. The following year both the Giants and fellow NY team the Dodgers made an unprecedented move West to California. Today, the New York Giants legacy lives on in the “NY” logo script adopted by the Mets when they were formed in 1962 to honor this legendary team.
Moving to California wasn’t without its downsides for the now-San Francisco Giants.
The Giants and the Dodgers: A Legendary Rivalry
No discussion of MLB rivalries would be complete without acknowledging the Giants’ beef with the Los Angeles Dodgers. With both teams starting out in New York and relocating to California in the same year, the Giants have plenty in common with their LA counterparts.
The Dodgers’ early post-relocation success left the Giants in the dust for decades, fueled the rivalry for both teams. Now it seems the tables have turned, and with the Giants exploding back to action in recent years, it’s Dodgers fans who are feeling the heat.
