The San Francisco Giants' 2012 postseason run was symbolic of the team's season. The 2012 season saw the Giants lose closer Brian Wilson to injury in April, overcome the departure of All-Star left fielder Melky Cabrera to suspension in August, and adjust to the season-long struggles of ace Tim Lincecum. Yet the Giants captured the National League West crown. In the National League playoffs, the Giants won a record six elimination games in the NLDS and NLCS to reach the World Series, where they swept the Detroit Tigers.
Packed with unique analysis and outstanding color photography from the Bay Area's largest newspaper publisher, Comeback Kings takes fans through the Giants' amazing journey, from spring training to Matt Cain's perfect game to Sergio Romo's mound celebration in Detroit. This commemorative edition also includes in-depth profiles of National League batting champion Buster Posey, manager Bruce Bochy, second baseman Marco Scutaro, and other fan favorites.
