Birthday of a Giants Great Today
And I forgot about it.
It was on this day in 1873 that John McGraw was born. One of the all time great baseball players and managers. After managing for three seasons in Baltimore, he took over the Giants in 1902 and lead them until 1933. In that time his teams finished second eleven times, won the National League 10 times, and won 3 world series titles. He finished his career with a .586 winning percentage (2763 wins 1948 losses).
