Regular season[edit]
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.
