    The 1915 New York Giants season was the franchise's 33rd season. The team finished eighth in the eight-team National League with a record of 69–83, 21 games behind the Philadelphia Phillies.

    Opening day game

    Opening day was April 14, 1915 at the Polo Grounds against the Brooklyn Dodgers with 20,000 attendees. Mayor John Purroy Mitchel threw the ceremonial first pitch. The New York Giants Opening Day starting pitcher was Jeff Tesreau. The Giants won 16 to 3.[1]

    Regular season

    After finishing first in 1911, 1912, and 1913 and second in 1914, the Giants fell to last place in the National League in 1915. Much of the collapse was due to the pitching staff. Hall of Famers Christy Mathewson and Rube Marquard both struggled through subpar seasons. Marquard would be placed on waivers in August and claimed by the Brooklyn Robins.
