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[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. The Giants set a record for the highest team batting average (.319) in the modern era (since 1901).
