Long Ago Polo by Bill Purdom
Long Ago Polo
It's the summer of 1922 at the Polo Grounds in New York City. The Yankees will move into their new ballpark in The Bronx next summer. For now, this is home, and there's no mistaking the Yankee batter, even though he isn't yet wearing his familiar No. 3. Babe Ruth and the Yankees are hosting the St. Louis Browns, a team they will battle all summer before finally winning the American League pennant by one game. St. Louis first baseman George Sisler will capture the American League batting crown with a .420 average. And the World Series will be played at the Polo Grounds between the Yankees and the Giants, the park's full-time tenant (the Giants won in four games). There's no optical illusion here; in this horseshoe shaped ballpark the right field foul pole is only 258 feet away! Check out the National League coats of arms on the facing of the roof. They were removed after the '22 season.

Polo Grounds 1954 by Andy Jurinko
Polo Grounds 1954
It’s September 30, 1954, at New York’s Polo Grounds, and Dusty Rhodes has just launched a solo, 7th-inning homer off Cleveland’s Early Wynn in Game 2 of the World Series. The shot off the right field facade provides the Giants with an insurance run in their 3-1 victory over the Indians. A day earlier, Rhodes’ pinch-hit, 3-run homer in the 10th inning lifted the Giants to a 5-2 victory in Game 1.

Candlestick Autumn Classic by William Feldman
Candlestick Autumn Classic
It's October 16, 1962, Game 7 of the World Series at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, and Willie Mays is about to belt a ninth-inning double to set up one of the most dramatic moments in World Series history. The two-base hit off Yankee Ralph Terry will move Matty Alou to third and bring up Willie McCovey with two outs and the Yankees leading the Giants in the deciding game 1-0. McCovey, you may recall will line out to second baseman Bobby Richardson, enabling the Yankees to win the Series four games to three. Catcher Elston Howard, first baseman Moose Skowron, shortstop Tony Kubek, third baseman Clete Boyer, left fielder Tom Tresh, center fielder Mickey Mantle and right fielder Roger Maris are also in the field for the Yankees

Amazing Polo Debut by Bill Purdom
Amazing Polo Debut
It’s Monday night, May 28, 1951, and rookie Willie Mays, 20, has just launched a first- inning pitch from Boston Braves southpaw Warren Spahn toward the left field roof at the Polo Grounds in Manhattan. It is Mays’ first home at-bat for the New York Giants, his first big league hit and the first of 660 homers in his amazing Hall of Fame career. “For the first 60 feet,” Spahn supposedly mused, “it was a hell of a pitch.” Mays had been summoned to the Giants a few days earlier and had gone 0-for-12 in a series against the Phils in Philadelphia. After this solo HR off Spahn he went hitless in his next 14 at-bats, but it hardly mattered to Giants’ manager Leo Durocher, who knew talent when he saw it. Spahn, 30, will go on to post his third straight 20-plus win season en route to a 363-win Hall of Fame career. Walker Cooper is Boston’s catcher.

Amazing Polo Catch by Bill Purdom
Amazing Polo  Catch
It's September 29, 1954, Game 1 of the Cleveland Indians-New York Giants World Series at the Polo Grounds in Manhattan. And that's 23-year-old Giants center fielder Willie Mays running down and hauling in Vic Wertz' enormous eighth-inning drive for what will be remembered always as one of the greatest catches in World Series history. Mays' effort, with runners on first and second and no outs, preserved a 2-2 tie and choked off what could have been a pivotal inning for the heavily-favored Indians. When Giants pinch-hitter Dusty Rhodes connected for a 257-foot homer in the bottom of the 10th, New York had recorded a 5-2 victory and was on its way to a stunning 4-0 Series sweep of its American League opponent.
