    The 1905 New York Giants season was the franchise's 23rd season, and the team won their second consecutive National League pennant. They beat the Philadelphia Athletics in the World Series. This team featured three Hall of Fame players – catcher Roger Bresnahan, and pitchers Christy Mathewson and Joe McGinnity – along with Hall of Fame manager John McGraw.

    Regular season

    Mathewson won the pitching triple crown and then had one of the greatest World Series performances of all-time, with three shutouts in six days. Only six men pitched for the Giants in 1905. The offense, led by "Turkey" Mike Donlin, scored the most runs in the majors.

    On June 29, Archie "Moonlight" Graham, made famous through the novel Shoeless Joe and subsequent movie "Field of Dreams", made his lone major league appearance.[1]
