Regular seasonEdit

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.
