Dunn Field

Dunn Field was the home of the Trenton Giants minor league baseball team from 1939-1951.  The team was acquired by the San Francisco Giants in 1945, and in 1950 San Francisco sent 19-year-old minor league prospect Willie Mays to play in Trenton.  Mays played in 81 games with the Trenton Giants, batting .353.  Mays was promoted to San Francisco’s AAA team in 1951 and made his major league debut the same year.  Widely regarded as one of baseball’s greatest all-around players, Mays was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1979. The field was located on Brunswick Circle @ Route 1.
