    The 1927 New York Giants season was the franchise's 45th season. The team finished third in the National League with a record of 92–62, 2 games behind the Pittsburgh Pirates.

    Offseason

    During the offseason, the Giants acquired Rogers Hornsby from the St. Louis Cardinals for Frankie Frisch and Jimmy Ring. Hornsby's offensive numbers rebounded in 1927, as he hit .361 and led the league in runs scored (133), walks (86), and an on-base percentage (.448). The deal was held up because Hornsby, as part of his contract as the manager of the Cardinals (he was a player-manager at the time), owned several shares of stock in the Cardinals. Cardinals owner Sam Breadon offered Hornsby a sum for the stock considerably lower than what Hornsby demanded for it, and neither would budge. Eventually, the other owners of the National League made up the difference, and the trade went through.
