Overview

With a history that straddles two coasts and more than a century of winning, the San Francisco Giants baseball club stands out as one of the great franchises of professional sports. The Giants’ World Series victory in 2012 marked their second championship in three years and helped further secure the team’s place among baseball’s elite teams. The organization boasts more Hall of Fame inductees than any other baseball team, as well as 22 National League pennants gathered over nine different decades. From McGraw and Mathewson to Mays and Marichal, Hubbell and Ott to Cain and Posey, the Giants have been bringing excitement and drama to the diamond for generations. Giants Past & Present goes around the horn to celebrate the legends at each position on the field—from the little-remembered stars of the nineteenth century to the champions of tomorrow—and visits the memorable and distinctive ballparks that have housed the team on two ends of the continent. Author and baseball fan Dan Fost presents the players, the dugout and front-office wizards, the voices from the broadcast booth, the hard-luck heroes, and the myriad rites of spring that keep fans coming back year after year. Complete with chapters on uniforms, ballpark food, fans, and more, Giants Past & Present will take you back to warm summer days at the Polo Grounds, breezy summer nights at Candlestick Park, and all the latest memories being made at AT&T Park by the Bay.
