The 1890 New York Giants baseball team was a member of the short lived Players' League. They compiled a 74–57 record, good for third place, eight games behind the league champion Boston Reds. After the season, the league folded, and the Giants were bought out by their National League counterpart. The Giants were the original tenants of the Polo Grounds stadium that afterwards was occupied by the National League's New York Giants for 66 years.
