The New York Giants finished 1922 with a 93-61 regular-season mark under the direction of John McGraw to win the National League pennant, finishing a comfortable seven games ahead of the Cincinnati Reds and eight ahead of third-place co-habitants Pittsburgh and St. Louis.
The Giants won their second straight World Series championship, sweeping the New York Yankees in five games (Game Two ended in a tie). Four pitchers won a game each, highlighted by Jack Scott's four-hit shutout in Game Three.
First baseman George Kelly turned in a monstrous season, hitting .328 with 194 hits, 17 home runs and 107 RBI in 151 games. He was worth the price of admission to the Polo Grounds, where the Giants drew 945,809 fans.By The Baseball Page
