San Francisco Giants Book - Gift Details
Heres your chance to relive the Giants finest moments with this Los Angeles Times newspaper book, featuring reprints of reports written at the time.
Coverage begins way back in 1905 when the Giants, then based in New York, won their first World Series under the guidance of the one and only John McGraw. Mr McGraw, as the players called him, would be in charge of the Giants for three decades until 1932, overseeing nine National League pennants in 1904/05, 1911-13, 1917 and 1921-24, and two further World Series in 1921 and 1922. All is present and correct in the book.
A year after McGraws departure, the team were at it again, winning their third World Series in 1933. Between then and their next world championship in 1954, the book features plenty of standout results, before covering the move from New York to their current home in San Francisco, California. World Series defeats in 1962, 1989 and 2002 are also included thereafter. And all the while, memorable games continue to pepper the book.
More recently, the book features the World Series victories in 2010 and 2012, when the team comfortably beat the Texas Rangers and the Detroit Tigers, respectively. Match reports aside, youll also find coverage of Barry Bonds record-breaking home run season of 2001 and his historic moment in 2007 when he hit his 756th home run to pass Hank Aarons record.
