GIANTS WORLD SERIES TROPHY WEEKEND AT THE HALL OF FAME

83_GOTHAMS
Today’s San Francisco Giants trace their roots back to New York, where they played from 1883 until moving to California in 1958. That first 1883 Giants team—known as the New York Gothams—wore this amazing emblem on their uniforms:
This original patch resides at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown.
While it’s certainly an incredible object to look at, it’s significant too. It could well be the first non-typographic decoration of any kind on a Major League Baseball uniform.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 1, 2015 – 9:00AM TO
SUNDAY, AUGUST 2, 2015 – 9:00PM
REMINDER:
With three World Series titles in five seasons, the San Francisco Giants are going to need more room in their trophy case.
But before the 2014 World Series trophy goes on permanent display in San Francisco, it will make a stop at the home of baseball in Cooperstown.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum hosts Giants Weekend Aug 1-Aug. 2 in Cooperstown.
The Museum will honor the 2014 San Francisco Giants with its annual World Series Weekend. Museum visitors will have the chance to relive the 2014 season and create new memories in Cooperstown, where artifacts of the Giants’ world title will be preserved forever. Many of those artifacts are on display in the Museum’s exhibit Autumn Glory, which celebrates each season’s playoff and World Series teams.
Visitors will be permitted to take pictures with the trophies.

July 24, 1951
At cavernous Forbes Field, Giants’ outfielder Willie Mays, unable to reach across his body to make a catch with his glove of Rocky Nelson’s sinking 457-foot blast to deep center, sticks out his bare right hand and grabs the ball on a full gallop to make the incredible final out of the inning. Venerable Branch Rickey, Pittsburgh’s general manager, sends a note to the New York dugout during the game to tell the 20-year rookie, “That was the finest catch I have ever seen, and the finest I ever expect to see”.
