1915 New York Giants season

The 1915 New York Giants season was a season in Major League Baseball. The team finished eighth in the eight-team National League with a record of 69-83, 21 games behind the Philadelphia Phillies.

Regular season

After finishing first in 1911, 1912, and 1913 and second in 1914, the Giants fell to last place in the National League in 1915. Much of the collapse was due to the pitching staff. Hall of Famers Christy Mathewson and Rube Marquard both struggled through subpar seasons. Marquard would be placed on waivers in August and claimed by the Brooklyn Robins.
