What’s amazing, among other things, is that the Giants started as the New York Gothams in 1883, the Tigers have been playing baseball in Detroit since 1901, the first World Series was played in 1903 — and the Tigers and Giants have never met in a World Series.
“I’ll have to learn a lot about them real soon, to be honest,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said late Monday night. “I was totally focused on [the Cardinals]. And now we have to turn the page because we’re playing a game here in a couple of days.”
