    The 1911 New York Giants season was the franchise's 29th season. It involved the Giants winning their first of three consecutive National League pennants. They were beaten by the Philadelphia Athletics in the World Series.

    Led by manager John McGraw, the Giants won the NL by 7½ games. On the offensive side, they finished second in total runs scored. On the defensive side, they allowed the fewest. Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson led the league in ERA, and Rube Marquard had the most strikeouts.

    Taken together with the 1912 and 1913 pennant winners, this team is considered one of the greatest of all-time.[1]

    Charlie "Victory" Faust

    One of the Giants' drawing cards came in the form of unknown pitcher Charlie Faust, whose story was retold by Fred Snodgrass in The Glory of Their Times. Faust was considered something of a "good-luck charm" by manager McGraw, and was used sparingly. In 1911, Faust appeared in just two games for the team, which was the entirety of his major league playing career. As a pitcher, he pitched two innings, giving up one run. As a batter, he tallied one hit by pitch, two stolen bases, and one run scored, in zero at bats.
