As the 2018 World Series is set to begin Tuesday night, it’s a good time for fans to reflect on the run of success the San Francisco Giants had in the Fall Classic.
Especially with the Dodgers back in the World Series, San Francisco Giants fans need something positive to think about this October.
Their run of success with three World Series titles in five years was great, and may never be done again with the parody in baseball these days.
In the past 10 years, only the Giants have won multiple World Series titles. Of course, that would change if the Red Sox win this year as they also won it back in 2013.
Its’ always great to mention that the Dodgers haven’t won a World Series title since 1988 — the year I was born.
However, I also have to mention that the Giants went 52 years in San Francisco without winning a title. And the Giants only made three World Series appearances over that time, so that gives you even more reason to enjoy the success while you are experiencing the moment.
It has already been four years since the Giants last hoisted the World Series trophy, and already the fanbase is getting a little unsettled.
That’s why we are going to take a deep breath and look back at the fortune of the Giants from 2010-2014, looking at big wins and big moments to make us smile again this October.
