    The 1917 New York Giants season was the franchise's 35th season. It involved the Giants winning the National League pennant for the first time in four years. The team went on to lose to the Chicago White Sox in the 1917 World Series, four games to two.

    Regular season

    New York had no real superstars, but they had a very balanced roster and led the league in both runs scored and fewest runs allowed.

    Third baseman Heinie Zimmerman had a fine offensive season, pacing the circuit in runs batted in, but suffered through an embarrassment in the World Series. A third baseman, Zimmerman had the unfortunate task of chasing White Sox star Eddie Collins across home plate when there was no one to throw to. The Giants lost in six games.

    Between July 31 and August 10, the Giants hit at least one triple in each of 11 games, the longest such streak in franchise history (considering records from 1914 onwards).[1]
