The New York Giants Used to Play in Yankee Stadium

In 1925, the New York Giants shared a stadium with the New York Giants. No, the other New York Giants. Back in the golden age of baseball in New York, the city hosted three teams: the Yankees, the Dodgers and the Giants. But there was also the football Giants, and both Giants teams shared a stadium at the long-gone Polo Grounds. But by 1956, they moved to the larger Yankee Stadium until the team announced that it would play in a brand new stadium in New Jersey. So over the next three years, the Giants jumped from Yankee Stadium to the Yale Bowl in New Haven, Conn., to Shea Stadium until finally moving to Giants Stadium in 1976.
