Overview

THE TEAM: The Giants franchise is the winningest in professional baseball history, having won more regular season games than the Cubs, Yankees, Dodgers, or Red Sox. The Giants have been to the World Series 18 times and claimed six championships during baseball's modern era--and the success of this franchise has been built on legends, as the club also boasts more Hall of Fame players than any other in the sport.

THE FORMAT: The presentation created by the authors distinguishes Sports by the Numbers from everything else available today. San Francisco Giants is composed of ten chapters, each offering one hundred numbered "mini-stories"--facts, anomalies, records, coincidences, and enthralling lore and trivia from Hall of Fame legends such as Willie Mays, Mel Ott, and Bill Terry, to contemporary stars such as Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, and Buster Posey.

Each chapter begins with an introduction that highlights the many exciting stories found in these pages such as the "Shot Heard 'Round the World," Mays' catch in the 1954 World Series, Barry Bonds' pursuit of Hank Aaron, and rivalry games against the hated Dodgers.

Sports by the Numbers books are not just for diehard sports fans, but for every fan and sports history reader who loves sports and wants to know more about their heroes and favorite teams.
