Baseball's new dynasty is the San Francisco Giants. The Giants captured their third World Series crown in five seasons in 2014—this last one having taken perhaps the most unlikely path. San Francisco finished second in the NL West but advanced to the Wild Card game against Pittsburgh. The Giants stomped the Pirates 8-0, then outlasted the Washington Nationals and the St. Louis Cardinals to set up a Fall Classic showdown with the Kansas City Royals.Packed with insider analysis and outstanding color photography from the Bay Area's largest newspaper publisher, Triple Crowned takes fans through the Giants' improbable journey, from Tim Lincecum's June no-hitter to the Wild Card game in Pittsburgh to the final out against the Royals. This commemorative edition also includes profiles of Madison Bumgarner, Hunter Pence, Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, and other fan favorites.

The San Francisco Giants’ Incredible 2014 Championship Season

The Giants’ Win in Seven, Claim Their Third World Series in Five Years

 

The San Francisco Giants reign once more over Major League Baseball, conquering the Kansas City Royals in a thrilling seven game series. With a third World Series Championship in five years this Giants team has firmly cemented its place in baseball lore.

 

Packed with unmatched analysis and dynamic color photography, from the Bay Area News Group, Triple Crowned: The San Francisco Giants’ Incredible 2014 Championship Season (Triumph Books, November 2014) takes fans through the Giants’ amazing journey, from Tim Lincecum’s June no-hitter to Yusmeiro Petit’s record-breaking scoreless innings streak to Travis Ishikawa’s pennant-winning blast to the final pitch in Kansas City. This commemorative edition also includes in-depth profiles of ace starter Madison Bumgarner, outfielder Hunter Pence, General Manager Brian Sabean, and other fan favorites.

 

In October, the Giants prevailed over three of the National League’s top four teams, including the first place Washington Nationals, to win the pennant and secure their place in the World Series against the Kansas City Royals. The 2014 Fall Classic was tinged with what Giants' Manager Bruce Bochy likes to call “championship blood.” Unconcerned with big names or colossal numbers, one secret to the Giants’ success was a stoic roster loaded with 16 players having at least one World Series ring.

 

From opening day to Bumgarner’s final pitch in Game 7, Triple Crowned captures every daunting juncture and electrifying moment along the Giants’ road to an incredible third World Series Championship in the last five years.
