In 1890, the short-lived Players' League included a team called the New York Giants. This baseball team was managed by Hall of Famer Buck Ewing, and they finished third with a record of 74-57. Besides Ewing, who was also a catcher on this team, the roster several former members of the National League New York Giants, such as Hall of Famers Roger Connor, Jim O'Rourke, Hank O'Day, and Tim Keefe.[1] The team played its home games at the Polo Grounds.[2]

After the season, their owner, Edward Talcott, bought a minority stake in the National League Giants--in effect, merging the two clubs.
