Polo Grounds and its Former Tenants Emerge from the Shadows

"Everything about the Giants gets short shrift," said Peter Magowan, the former managing general partner of the San Francisco Giants, who grew up in New York and attended his first Giants game at the Polo Grounds in 1950. "It was unique and very quirky. It was a great old ballpark." Remembrances of the Polo Grounds, as a ballpark and a football stadium, move into the forefront this weekend. Its most famous tenant will make a triumphant return, and a lesser-known one will be playing for a spot in a league championship game. On Friday and Saturday, the San Francisco Giants bring their World Series trophy — and Willie Mays — to New York on an ancestral tour that includes a visit to Public School 46, near the Polo Grounds site.
