The San Francisco Giants are an American baseball team. Their 2011 season marked their 129th year in Major League Baseball, and their fifty-fourth year in San Francisco since their move from New York following the 1957 season. They opened the 2011 season as the defending World Series champions on March 31, 2011. However, they were eliminated from post-season contention on September 24, 2011, finishing eight games behind that season's National League West champion Arizona Diamondbacks. Despite having the record of lowest runs scored of all time, they led the majors in 9th inning comebacks.

Regular season[edit]

Coming off the team's 2010 World Series success and his two-year, $22 million contract, Aubrey Huff arrived at 2011 spring training out of shape.[1][2] His OPS dropped 215 points from the previous season to .676, last among Major League first baseman in 2011.[1][3][4] Well-intentioned fans sent him thongs throughout the season in hopes of improving his fortunes.[3] Huff was accountable for his struggles contributing to the team's failure to return to the playoffs in 2011.[1][2]
