Before the Giants became the San Francisco Giants, they had some amazingly talented players. Christy Mathewson, Mel Ott, Carl Hubbell, Johnny Mize, Bill Terry, and Monte Irvin were some of the greatest players to play the game. They won seven World Series titles while in New York, and created a brand in baseball that has continued to thrive 3000 miles away.

After moving out west, the team found it difficult to consistently compete for the title. But they still had some very good players on those teams who poured their heart into continuing the traditions established by their predecessors.

This is the San Francisco Giants all-time roster after moving west. It consists of a the offensive lineup, which is the eight starters and five coming off the bench. (Must have a minimum of five years with the team, and all stats and awards are specifically while playing in San Francisco)
