The 1947 New York Giants season was the franchise's 65th season. The team finished in fourth place in the National League with an 81-73 record, 13 games behind the Brooklyn Dodgers. It was the first season to be broadcast on television, with WNBT acting as the official team television broadcast partner.

Offseason

Regular season

  • April 18: In the third inning of a game against the Brooklyn Dodgers, Dave Koslo gave up Jackie Robinson's first major league home run.[3]
  • April 19: 32,355 paying fans and 736 servicemen set the record for the biggest Saturday attendance at the Polo Grounds. Jackie Robinson had three at bats and had two singles and one double. The Giants still managed to win the game by a score of 4–3.[4]

Between September 5 and 23, the Giants hit at least one home run in each of 19 games, the longest such streak in franchise history (considering records from 1914 onwards).[5]
