  • New York Giants Preservation Society's 1st Meeting of 2017

    The first NYGPS meeting of 2017 will take place on Wednesday, January 18, 2017, at 6:30PM at our home base the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse. Our guest speaker will be author and huge Giants fan Dan Taylor. Dan was also a former award-winning television sportscaster. Dan talk will focus on “The Unsung Heroes of the Giants Organization.” He will delve into their scouting and development program dating back to 1937 and the work of Jack Schwarz and his scouts. Schwarz was the longtime director of player development for the New York and later San Francisco Giants,
    Dan will also discuss his book, "A Scout's Report: My 70 Years in Baseball" which he co-wrote with super-scout George Genovese. Genovese signed many great SF Giants In three decades with the Giants, Genovese signed some 40 players who made the major leagues, including Giants George Foster, Jack Clark, Bobby Bonds, Chili Davis, Gary Matthews, Matt Williams and Royce Clayton. Here is Amazon's synopsis of the book.
    "Many in baseball consider the scout to be the most important figure in any organization: It is the scout's work in the high school and college bleachers that unearths future legends. Few have achieved more--and in such grand style--than George Genovese.
    In a game that values numbers, Genovese's are staggering. No other scout has been responsible for more players in a single lineup, more home runs by players signed or more All-Star and World Series highlights than Genovese.
    Genovese's eye for talent is unmatched, his advocacy for the players he discovers is unrivaled, and the investment he makes toward their success is a difference maker. This autobiography is the story of his seven decades in baseball as a player, manager and scout."
    Please RSVP ASAP as this event will surely be well attended. For those interested the book will go for $30 and Dan will gladly autograph it.
