Manager John McGraw and pitcher Christy Mathewson.

The New York Giants' 1911 season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Giants winning their first of three consecutive National League pennants.

Led by manager John McGraw, the Giants won the NL by 7.5 games. On the offensive side, they finished second in total runs scored. On the defensive side, they allowed the fewest. Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson led the league in ERA, and Rube Marquard had the most strikeouts.

They were beaten by the Philadelphia Athletics in the World Series.

Along with the 1912 and 1913 pennant winners, this team is considered one of the greatest of all-time.[1]

Charlie "Victory" Faust

One of the Giants' drawing cards came in the form of unknown pitcher Charlie Faust, whose story was retold by Fred Snodgrass in The Glory of Their Times.

In 1911, Faust actually appeared in two games for the team. The record shows him as having one hit by pitch, two stolen bases, and one run scored, in zero at bats.
