THIS DATE IN NY GIANTS HISTORY: JUNE 29, 1905

June 29, 1905
With the Giants leading the Superbas, 11-1, Archibald ‘Moonlight’ Graham makes his major league debut in the bottom of the eighth inning as a defensive replacement in right field at Brooklyn’s Washington Park. The career minor leaguer, who will not have a major league at-bat in his only appearance in the big leagues, will become immortalized by W.P. Kinsella’s book Shoeless Joe and the movie based on the author’s work, Field of Dreams. (Nationalpastime.com)
