The 1905 New York Giants won their second consecutive National League pennant. They beat the Philadelphia Athletics in the World Series.

This team featured three Hall of Famers: manager John McGraw, catcher Roger Bresnahan, and pitchers Christy Mathewson and Joe McGinnity. Mathewson won the pitching triple crown and then had one of the greatest World Series performances of all-time, with three shutouts in six days. Only six men pitched for the Giants in 1905.

The offense, led by "Turkey" Mike Donlin, scored the most runs in the majors.
