The 2003 San Francisco Giants season was the Giants' 121st year in Major League Baseball, their 46th year in San Francisco since their move from New York following the 1957 season, and their fourth at Pacific Bell Park. The Giants finished in first place in the National League West with a record of 100 wins and 61 losses. They lost the National League Division Series in four games to the Florida Marlins.

Offseason

  • November 15, 2002: Tsuyoshi Shinjo was released by the San Francisco Giants.[1]
  • December 7, 2002: Marquis Grissom signed as a Free Agent with the San Francisco Giants.
  • December 7, 2002: Ray Durham was signed as a Free Agent with the San Francisco Giants.[2]
  • March 18, 2003: Clay Bellinger was signed as a Free Agent with the San Francisco Giants.[3]

Regular season

The Giants only played 161 games. One game (at New York Mets) was postponed due to the Northeast Blackout of 2003 and was not rescheduled as it had no playoff implications.

On June 23 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Barry Bonds stole second in the 11th inning, the 500th steal of his career. He became the first major leaguer to collect 500 home runs and 500 stolen bases in a career.
