The Dawn of the San Francisco Giants
Owned by San Francisco Baseball Associates, LLC., the San Francisco Giants were established in 1883 as the New York Gothams. After a gap of two years, the name of the team was changed to the New York Giants before they eventually moved to San Francisco. The Giants then became a member club of the National League West division.
The San Francisco Giants kicked off their career as the New York Gothams and played their first season in 1883. They achieved the winning percentage of .479 by emerging victorious in 46 games and lost 50. After two years, the team’s name was changed to the New York Giants who delivered some amazing performances in the next few seasons from 1885-87, but failed to make it to the playoffs. That changed the following year in 1888 when the Giants defeated the St. Louis Browns 6-4 and captured their first World Series title. In 1989, they once again appeared in the playoffs and won their second World Series championship by coming out on top against the Brooklyn Bridegrooms 6-3.
During 1890 to 1893, the Giants continued to play competitively and garnered their first Temple Cup in 1894 by winning against the Baltimore Orioles 4-0. Five more World Series titles were won by the team in 1905, 1921, 1922, 1933 and 1954. The New York Giants played their last season in 1957 before the team moved to the city of San Francisco.
Dominating the MLB in the mid-90s
In 1958, the San Francisco Giants played their inaugural season. Although the team was not able to qualify for the playoffs, the Giants first batsman, Orlando Cepeda won the Rookie of the Year Award. In 1962, the Giants appeared in the playoffs, but lost the World Series to the New York Yankees 4-3. However, that did not slow them down. They made it to the playoffs again almost a decade later and won their first West division title in 1971. The team later bagged two more West Division crowns in 1987 and 1989, respectively. The 1997 MLB season was the winning season for the Giants. They racked up 90 wins and lost 72. Their winning percentage was .566 and they stood first in the West division.
The start of the new millennium
The San Francisco Giants started the new millennium by advancing into the playoffs in 2000 and won their fifth West Division crown. However, they lost the NLDS game and were defeated by the New York Mets. A couple of years later in 2002, the team entered the playoffs yet again and this time they went on to win the NLDS and NLCS games against the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals, respectively. However, the Giants came up short against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and lost the World Series championship game.
From 2004 to 2009, the team was unable to qualify for the playoffs, but before long, they were back to their winning ways. They captured not one but three World Series championships in 2010, 2012 and 2014 by defeating the Texas Rangers, Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals, respectively.
Ready to dominate the 2017 season
