1930 New York Giants (MLB) season

The 1930 New York Giants season was the 48th in franchise history. The team finished third in the National League with a record of 87-67, 5 games behind the St. Louis Cardinals.

Regular season

Giants player Bill Terry was the last member of the Giants, and the last National League player in the 20th century, to have a batting average of .400 in one season.[1] In the process, he tied the National League record -- set the previous year by Lefty O'Doul -- for most hits in a single season with 254. As of the end of the 2009 season, that record still stands.
