The San Francisco Giants have finally proved that they are a team to be reckoned with. Having never won the World Series while in San Francisco, the last time the Giants saw the trophy was when they were based out of New York in 1954.
The 1954 NY Giants team was composed of superstars, names such as Willie Mays, Dusty Rhodes and Hank Thompson. In comparison, this SF Giants team had a lineup of regulars in Cody Ross, Pat Burrell and Aaron Rowland.
The time has finally come, 50 plus years later, for the ‘new’ Giants of San Francisco to separate from the ‘old’ Giants of New York. San Francisco can now say they have a winner of their own.
