Baseball's new dynasty is the San Francisco Giants. The Giants captured their third World Series crown in five seasons in 2014--this last one having taken perhaps the most unlikely path. San Francisco finished second in the NL West but advanced to the Wild Card game against Pittsburgh. The Giants stomped the Pirates 8-0, then outlasted the Washington Nationals and the St. Louis Cardinals to set up a Fall Classic showdown with the Kansas City Royals. Packed with insider analysis and outstanding color photography from the Bay Area's largest newspaper publisher, Triple Crowned takes fans through the Giants' improbable journey, from Tim Lincecum's June -hitter to the Wild Card game in Pittsburgh to the final out against the Royals. This commemorative edition also includes profiles of Madison Bumgarner, Hunter Pence, Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, and other fan favorites.
