Description

Plans for the New York Giants Farm Clubs' baseball diamonds drawn on October 7, 1947. The Giants' Spring Training Facility offered a summer athletic experience for boys in order to gain extra revenue. In 1947, the City of Sanford collaborated with the New York Giants, now the San Francisco Giants, to layout and create a 10-diamond practice field. The Giants also owned the Mayfair Hotel and Mayfair Country Club and golf course until the early 1960s, and players would use these facilities when staying in town for training. The Giants franchise moved to San Francisco in 1957.
