Home Plate: A Celebration of the Polo Grounds
The Birthplace of New York’s Love Affair for its Favorite Teams
Exhibition On View: August 22 - January 5
Since its construction in 1765, the Morris-Jumel Mansion has witnessed countless changes in the terrain and built environment. In 1890, the third Polo Grounds rose within the gaze of the Mansion and would serve as home to the New York Giants baseball team from 1891- 1957, the New York Yankees from 1913 - 22, the New York Giants football team from 1925-55 as well as stints by several other professional teams. The exhibition will explore and celebrate those teams that made the stadium a New York icon and the associated personalities that became local and national heroes.
