One thought on “THIS DATE IN NY GIANTS HISTORY: JANUARY 15, 1936

  1. These “Date(s) In NY Giants History” are exceptional. Many are nostalgic, having lived during so many of the postings. Our Coogan’s Bluff boys were usually unable to enjoy all the attention the Dodgers had. Even in too many war movies during the 40s and 50s the cast included someone from Brooklyn and invariably he’d allude to the Dodgers (always with a fake Brooklyn accent). I cannot recall a single instance of “I live near the Polo Grounds and I wonder how my Giants are doing this year.”

    Finally…I’d love to see some wartime dates (1942-45 or ’46). Hats off to Leader Gary and to Steve as well.
