The 1985 San Francisco Giants season was the Giants' 103rd season in Major League Baseball, their 28th season in San Francisco since their move from New York following the 1957 season, and their 26th at Candlestick Park. It resulted in the team finishing in sixth place in the NL West Division with a record of 62 wins and franchise-record 100 losses. This was the first, and as of 2015, the only time in the history of the franchise that they reached the triple-digit mark in losses. It is also the most number of games they have lost in a season, as well. The Giants were managed by Jim Davenport, who was dismissed on September 18, after compiling a dismal 56-88 record, and Roger Craig, who guided the team to a 6-12 mark during the final 2½ weeks of the season.
