  • Polo Grounds Seating Chart

    If I'm posting this in the wrong forum, I apoligize.

    I recently acquired a ticket stub from the Polo Grounds for a game in 1953. Being from Detroit and nowhere near old enough to have ever gone to a game there, I don't know the section configuration. I've looked all over the 'Net for a seating chart to see where the seat was located, but haven't had any luck finding one.

    If someone could point me in the right direction to find one, or happens to have one, I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks

      Thanks for the suggestion. I had tried those and none have a seating chart. My last option is to contact the Hall of Fame, but their website says wait 8-10 weeks for a response.

        Contact the City of New York and the San Francisco Giants. They mave have that info in their archives.

        I have a picture in a book from the 1920s that shows the trajectory of a 560 foot home run that Babe Ruth hit.

          Although the site says 8-10 weeks, chances are the research Dept will respond quicker than that. I emailed them the other day and got a reply in like 2 days. They are your best bet though. -Sasha

              Thanks for everyone's help. I've contacted the Hall and I'm waiting for a response. If they can't help, then I'll try contacting the Mets and Giants PR departments. This is turning into a ton of work!

                I looked through some old baseball yearbooks that I had last night. A 1963 LA Dodgers yearbook had a diagram of the Polo Grounds (Home of the Mets) in the back of the book, but no seating chart. I would assume any old New York Giants program or yearbook would have the info you desire. Good luck in your search.

                  Please let us know what you come up with and I would be interested in knowing how fast the Hall responds. -Sasha

                    I received a response from the Hall on Friday, only three days after I contacted them. They are mailing me a copy they have on file.

                    Thanks for all the suggestions.

                      If they can't help you, I bet Polo Grounds 1957 can recite the seating chart by heart for you!

                        Here is a seating chart for the polo grounds. with this you should be able to find out the location of the ticket stub.

                            I would have no problem in sitting in section 4 of the polo grounds. i sat in many seats like those in tiger stadium and old comiskey park and enjoyed the game.

                              I always imagine the Polo Grounds to be a slightly quirkier version of Tiger Stadium. Which it was, basically.
