Franchise Best Single Season

San Francisco Giants All-Time Roster

This is the San Francisco Giants all-time roster. I decided to select two players for each infield position, six outfielders (regardless of specific position), and one designated hitter for each AL team. Hitters had to have a minimum of 1,500 plate appearance. For pitching, we selected seven starting pitchers, three non-closers, and two closers. Starting pitchers had to start at least 100 games during their time with the franchise to qualify. Relief pitchers were deemed non-closers if they saved less than 30 games. Closers are pitchers that save more than 30 games.
