Overview

To say that the San Francisco Giants were underdogs headed into the 2010 postseason would be an understatement. The Giants—who did not even clinch the National League West until the last game of the season—had completely turned over their starting lineup since the end of the 2008 season. And San Francisco's playoff attack featured a rookie catcher and two journeymen outfielders acquired at midseason. But behind baseball's best pitching staff, the motley collection of "freaks" and misfits did what legends such as Mays, Marichal, Clark, and Bonds could not—bring a World Series trophy to San Francisco. Packed with stunning action photography, Giant Surprise celebrates the exciting 2010 run with a review of every postseason game and features on Tim Lincecum, Series MVP Edgar Renteria, Brian Wilson, Buster Posey, Cody Ross, and more.
