About this title


With a title drought that started in New York and carried on for more than five decades after the move to the west coast, the San Francisco Giants and their fans were growing restless, waiting for a team like the 2010 roster and that one magical postseason run. The anticipation, memories, and celebrated relief of the season when it finally came together are captured in this chronicle of the World Series season of the Giants. Written in entertaining prose, the book is as much an enjoyable story to be reread through the years as it is a factual account of the events that brought the elusive title to the Giants.

From the Back Cover:

"Mays, McCovey, Cepeda, and Marichal--Hall of Famers all--couldn't do it. Nor could The Thrill, Matty, and Mitchell. Not even Bonds, Kent, and Nen. No, in 52 seasons in the City by the Bay, the Giants had never won a World Series. And then, suddenly, the 2010 Giants won it...emphatically, against all odds, despite being labeled a band of misfits. What a story! And it's all recounted here, in vivid, behind-the-scenes detail. Every Giants fan must have this book!"

--Jon Miller, Hall of Fame announcer and Giants play-by-play voice

"After being a part of the Giants organization for so many years, it was an honor - and excruciatingly fun -- to watch this team in 2010. I was as happy for them as if I'd won the World Series myself, and there's no better writer to cover this great season than Andy Baggarly. He is one of the few members of the media who is there day in and day out and who truly understands the game of baseball."

--Rich Aurilia, former Giants infielder

"All year long, Andy Baggarly was the must-read beat writer for the 2010 Giants. Now that the 2010 Giants have achieved immortality, Andy has become the must-read author to etch these indelible players and moments into lore. Anecdotes, insights, context, humor, ball knowledge and, yes, goosebumps are the result. In Giants-speak, let's just say Baggs NAILED IT."

--Brian Murphy, host of "Murph and Mac" morning show on KNBR Radio

"There are still millions of Americans wondering how Barry Bonds, Willie McCovey and Juan Marichal could have avoided winning a World Series in San Francisco - but a team that called itself The Misfits did. Well, thank heaven Andy Baggarly came along to explain it all so eloquently in this amazing book. It took a great writer and reporter to unearth the mysteries behind Aubrey Huff's thong, Brian Wilson's beard and this team's magical journey. And reading these riveting tales reminded me again why Andy Baggarly is one of the best baseball writers in America."

--Jayson Stark, ESPN
