Seals Stadium

When the New York Giants headed west for the 1958 season, they took up temporary residence in San Francisco's Seals Stadium. Built in 1931, the park was home to both the San Francisco Seals and San Francisco Missions of the Pacific Coast League. It was one of the most famous minor league stadiums and minor league home to Joe DiMaggio. "The Queen in Concrete", as it was known, was located in downtown San Francisco near the Hamms Brewery.

  • Anonymous said: My grandfather, William Wallace, was the ticket manager for the Seals for about 30 years. He had been a great third baseman at St. Mary's College and was asked to try out for the pros. Unfortunately, his mother kept him from going but he stayed near the game. He died the year before the Giants came to town but had he lived, they told him he would have a job with the new team. I never knew him but understand he was a very well-liked man, a friend of Lefty O'Doul. 1:38PM 11/04/11
