Giants Donate Money To Help Rebuild Last Parts Of Polo Grounds

By Bryan Rose

Our San Francisco Giants have been out West for over a half century, but, they haven’t forgot where they came from. Today, the NY Post reports the Giants have donated $50,000 dollars to the New York Parks Department in efforts to complete the partial re-build of the Polo Grounds. The $50K, in addition to $500K from the Yankees, NY Giants, Mets and Jets will help complete the $950,000 rebuilding of a stairway that runs from Edgecombe Avenue near 158th Street, near the old ballpark site.

The stairway is the last remaining remnant of the ballpark which was torn down in 1964 and replaced by a housing project.
