Though baseball would eventually come to embody the American spirit, in the nineteenth century onlookers regarded the game with some ambivalence. To capture the hearts of the public, baseball needed teams worth watching-and no team was a better ambassador for baseball in the 19th century than the New York Giants. The preJohn McGraw Giants were occasionally very good and frequently very fashionable, but they had not yet become the trademark team of the National League that they would become in the early 20th century. The Giants were, however, one of the league's premier teams simply because they played in the country's premier city. New York and its Giants epitomized the rise of industrialized America and the need for organized spectator diversions. Together, the city and the team helped propel baseball into its position as the national pastime.Hardy, James D., Jr. is the author of 'New York Giants Base Ball Club The Growth of a Team And a Sport, 1870 to 1900', published 2006 under ISBN 9780786427284 and ISBN 0786427280.
