    The 1946 Giants are the original subject of the phrase "nice guys finish last", a condensation of a reference to them by Leo Durocher of the Brooklyn Dodgers. The original quote by Durocher was "The nice guys are all over there, in seventh place." (July 6, 1946),[1][2][3] seventh place being last place in the National League.
