Why are giants wearing Gigantes?
Similarly, you may ask, why are the Giants wearing Gigantes today?
Today, the Gigantes jerseys continue to be a fan favorite. One reason may be that San Francisco fans feel they can identify with fans on a cultural level.
Likewise, why are the SF Giants colors orange and black? One popular answer is that John McGraw brought the colors orange and black to New York in 1903 when he began managing the Giants. More importantly, the team again changed its colors a few years after 1933 (see the uniform chronology again), so it wasn't deeply committed to those colors after the 1933 win.
Also to know is, what borough did the Giants play in?
During most of their 75 seasons in New York City, the Giants played home games at various incarnations of the Polo Grounds in Upper Manhattan.
