“I think when you look at this club, the terms 'teamwork,' 'team play,' 'play as a team' -- that's used loosely,
but these guys truly did. They set aside their own agenda and asked what's best for the club.”
-- Manager Bruce Bochy, After Game 4 of the 2012 World Series

NEW YORK, NY (November 19, 2012) -- It was a season finale like no other … the unrelenting San Francisco Giants clinched their 8th NL West Division title, clawed back from the brink of elimination six times in a thrilling Postseason run, then emerged victorious in a definitive four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers for their second World Series championship in three years.
