The 1962 San Francisco Giants season was the Giants' 80th year in Major League Baseball, their fifth year in San Francisco since their move from New York following the 1957 season, and their third at Candlestick Park. The team finished in first place in the National League with a record of 103 wins and 62 losses. They finished the season tied with their arch-rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers, for first place in the league, necessitating a three-game tiebreaker playoff to determine the pennant winner. The Giants won two of the three games to take their first National League title since moving to San Francisco, making the Giants the first NL Champions of the 162-game schedule era. They went on to the 1962 World Series, where they lost in seven games to the New York Yankees. The Giants had 1,552 hits in the regular season, the most in the club's San Francisco era.[1]

1962 World Series

Game 1

October 4, 1962, at Candlestick Park in San Francisco

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
New York (A) 2 0 0 0 0 0 1 2 1 6 11 0
San Francisco (N) 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 10 0
W: Whitey Ford (1–0)  L: Billy O'Dell (0–1)
HR: NYYClete Boyer (1)

Roger Maris' two-run double in the first inning set up Yankee starter Whitey Ford with a lead, but Willie Mays scored for the Giants in the second, ending Ford's record consecutive scoreless inning streak at 3323. Chuck Hiller's double and Felipe Alou's hit in the third tied the game, but the Yankees broke the tie in the 7th on Clete Boyer's HR and scored three insurance runs in the final two innings. Ford's complete game victory was the first of six in the series, four for the Yankees and two for the Giants.

Game 2

October 5, 1962, at Candlestick Park in San Francisco

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
New York (A) 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 1
San Francisco (N) 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 x 2 6 0
W: Jack Sanford (1–0)  L: Ralph Terry (0–1)
HR: SFGWillie McCovey (1)

With the Giants protecting a 1–0 lead in the 7th inning, Willie McCovey smashed a tremendous home run over the right field fence to boost 24-game winner Jack Sanford to 2–0 shutout of the Yankees, who managed only 3 hits.

Game 3

October 7, 1962, at Yankee Stadium in New York City

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
San Francisco (N) 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 3
New York (A) 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 0 x 3 5 1
W:Bill Stafford (1–0)   L: Billy Pierce (0–1)
HR: SFGEd Bailey (1)

The Yankees ended a scoreless tie in the 7th, scoring three times. Roger Maris drove a base hit off starter Billy Pierce for two runs batted in, and alert base-running allowed him to score the winning run in a 3–2 Yankee victory. Giants catcher Ed Bailey's 2-run homer in the top of the 9th left the Giants a run short.

Game 4

October 8, 1962, at Yankee Stadium in New York City

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
San Francisco (N) 0 2 0 0 0 0 4 0 1 7 9 1
New York (A) 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 1 3 9 1
W: Don Larsen (1–0)   L: Jim Coates (0–1)
HR: SFGTom Haller (1), Chuck Hiller (1)

For the second time in two days, a Giants' catcher stroked a two-run homer when Tom Haller hit his off Whitey Ford in the second inning. After the Yankees tied the score at 2–2, second baseman Chuck Hiller hit the first National League grand slam in World Series history in the 7th, and the Giants went on to win 7–3. The game marked the only appearance in this series of future Hall-of-famer Juan Marichal, who started for the Giants.

Don Larsen was the winning pitcher in relief, six years to the day of his perfect game in the 1956 World Series.

Game 5

October 10, 1962, at Yankee Stadium in New York City

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
San Francisco (N) 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 3 8 2
New York (A) 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 3 x 5 6 0
W: Ralph Terry (1–1)   L: Jack Sanford (1–1)
HR: SFGJosé Pagán (1)   NYYTom Tresh (1)

Hot hitting José Pagán drove in two runs with a single in the third and a home run in the 5th, but with the score tied 2–2 in the 8th, Tom Tresh walloped what proved to be the winning homer, a three-run shot that scored Bobby Richardson and Tony Kubek in front of him. With the series returning to San Francisco the Yankees had the edge, 3 games to 2, only to have the sixth game delayed four days by rain.

Game 6

October 15, 1962, at Candlestick Park in San Francisco

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
New York (A) 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 2 3 2
San Francisco (N) 0 0 0 3 2 0 0 0 x 5 10 1
W: Billy Pierce (1–1)  L: Whitey Ford (1–1)
HR: NYYRoger Maris (1)

In a battle of left-handed starting pitchers, Pierce out-dueled Ford and tossed a brilliant complete-game 3-hitter as the Giants evened the series at three wins apiece with a 5–2 victory. The Yankees' only runs came on a Maris solo home run in the 5th inning and an RBI single by Tony Kubek in the 8th inning.

Game 7

October 16, 1962, at Candlestick Park in San Francisco

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
New York (A) 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 7 0
San Francisco (N) 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 4 1
W: Ralph Terry (2–1)  L: Jack Sanford (1–2)

The only run of this classic game occurred in the 5th inning when Tony Kubek grounded into a double play, with Bill Skowron scoring from third. Ralph Terry, pitching the seventh game instead of Jim Bouton because of the rain delays, had given up Bill Mazeroski's Series-winning walk-off home run two years earlier in Pittsburgh but in his third start completely stifled the Giants' power hitters.

In the bottom of the 9th, pinch-hitter Matty Alou, batting for relief pitcher Billy O'Dell, led off the inning with a bunt base hit after first having a foul ball dropped, but Terry struck out the next two batters, Felipe Alou and Hiller. Mays hit a double into the right field corner, but Maris brilliantly played the carom, then hit cut-off man Richardson with a throw that was relayed perfectly to home. Alou, already aware of Maris' great arm, stopped at third. Facing Willie McCovey with two outs, Terry elected to pitch to him rather than walk the bases loaded and bring up Orlando Cepeda. Terry's inside fastball on the second pitch completely handcuffed McCovey, who nonetheless adjusted his bat in mid-swing to extend his arms and hit what he later claimed was the hardest ball he had ever struck. The line drive appeared at first to be going over the head of a perfectly positioned Richardson, but was in fact sinking from topspin, and Richardson made the catch without leaping to end the game. The Yankees won their 20th World Championship; they would not win another World Championship until 1977.
