    History is important to the San Francisco Giants.

    For proof look no further than all the statues outside of 24 Willie Mays Plaza or all the old timers the team invites back to the stadium again and again.

    But for the San Francisco Giants, the team's history goes deeper than its players. The team also remembers where it came from.

    After winning the World Series last year, the Giants took the tropy to the East Coast back to where the team started in New York.

    And now the Giants are putting their money where their heart once was. The team is donating $50,000 to the city of New York to help rebuild the old Polo Grounds where the team once played.

    The New York City Parks Department is working on a $950,000 project to rebuild a stairway that once led from a ticket booth down to the stadium.

    The piece is the last part of the stadium, which was torn down in 1964 to be rebuilt.

    The New York Giants, Yankees and Mets have all contributed towards the project as well.
