    The 1924 New York Giants season was the franchise's 42nd season. The team finished first in the National League with a record of 93–60, winning the pennant by 1½ games over the Brooklyn Robins. They went on to the World Series for the fourth consecutive year, yet lost to the Washington Senators in seven games.

    Offseason

    Regular season

    In the final series of the 1924 season, the Giants were playing the Philadelphia Phillies at the Polo Grounds and battling for the pennant with the Robins. Giants outfielder Jimmy O'Connell offered Phillies shortstop Heinie Sand $500 to throw the games. Sand rejected the bribe and reported it to Phillies manager Art Fletcher. It eventually led to the life-time suspension of O'Connell and Giants coach Cozy Dolan by Commissioner Landis, although future-Hall of Famers Frankie Frisch, George Kelly, and Ross Youngs were also implicated.[1]
