NY Claims SF Giants Owe Them World Series Trophy Visit

TROY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York newspaper has launched a campaign aimed at persuading the San Francisco Giants to bring their 2010 World Series trophy to the city where the team was born — and it’s not the Big Apple.

An online petition drive has been started by The Record of Troy, where the Troy City Trojans were a charter member of the National League when it started in 1879.

After the 1882 season, NL owners voted to move the franchise 135 miles south to New York City, where the team became the Giants. Some baseball historians said the removal was illegal because it violated the NL’s charter.

The newspaper said bringing the World Series trophy to Troy would “right a wrong” committed by Major League Baseball.
