    On SF Giants' return to New York, meet the people working to rediscover their Polo Grounds past

    “This school,” Peter Laskowich says, gesturing toward PS46, some 50 yards northeast, “is probably dead center field, so you figure Willie Mays was probably out there when he made that catch.” On the site of the old Polo Grounds, where Mays and so many other greats roamed until the Giants moved west in 1957, now sit four public housing towers. There are clues of its illustrious past — “The Catch,” “The Shot Heard 'Round The World,” dozens of World Series games, and a presidential first pitch (from FDR) — but besides the recently repainted black-and-orange signs bearing the complex's name, the Polo Grounds Towers, they require some searching. Laskowich, a New York-based historian, lecturer, and tour guide, and the nearly two dozen others from the New York Giants Preservation Society gathered here, in between the cluster of identical, red-brick, 30-story apartment buildings, are determined to change that.

    Sunday BP: Blake Sabol's first career hit

    In the excitement of yesterday's San Francisco Giants win over the New York Yankees, I neglected to even mention Blake Sabol's first major league hit in the recap. Honestly, I was thinking more about how he got hit by pitches in two consecutive at bats. With the Giants down 1-0 in the second inning, Sabol laid down a perfect bunt towards third base, drawing Yankee's third baseman Josh Donaldson off the base to chase into the infield for it. Both Sabol and David Villar, who was on first base at the time, ran it out and were safe before Donaldson could make a play.
