The 1917 New York Giants season was a season in Major League Baseball. It involved the Giants winning the National League pennant for the first time in four years.

New York had no real superstars, but they had a very balanced roster and led the league in both runs scored and fewest runs allowed.

Third baseman Heinie Zimmerman had a fine offensive season, pacing the circuit in runs batted in, but suffered through an embarrassment in the World Series. A third baseman, Zimmerman had the unfortunate task of chasing Chicago White Sox star Eddie Collins across home plate when there was no one to throw to. The Giants lost in six games.
