  • Giants Facts

    [Hi fellow Giants fans. Found this website recently and glad there is a site for Giants fans who like the history of baseball. I've put together some facts about the players who wore the NY proud. Hope you like it.

    "Wee Willie" Keeler was the first major leauger to have played for all three New York teams, Giants - 1892-1893, 1910, Superbas(Dodgers) 1899-1902,
    Highlanders(Yankees) 1903-1909.
    Christy Mathewson is the only pitcher to walk less than he won., twice. In
    1913, he finished with a 25-11 record while issuing 21 walks. The following year, 1914,"Matty" posted a 24-13 mark while giving up 23 base on balls.
    Richard "Rube" Marquard, pitching for Indianapolis of the old American Association, hurled a 7-0 no-hitter against the Columbus ballclub on Spetember 3, 1908. Rube is the only HOF to pitch a no-hitter in the American Association.
    When Carl Hubbell struck out five AL players in the 1934 All-Star game, their combined batting average is .320.

    Well, that's it for now. Thanks for the chance to post this.
