Contest: The Giants' last game at the Polo Grounds

"End of an Era" is a wonderful production focusing on the New York Giants' last home game at the Polo Grounds - September 29, 1957 - before they moved to San Francisco for the 1958 season. 

This is the work of a gentleman named Moe Resner, a baseball lifer who rose as high as minor-league coach. He attended this game, made his way onto the field during the pre-game festivities - apparently, security wasn't as tight then as it is now - and filmed, up close, much of what occurred. He narrates it years later, offering IDs (to those of us who don't know the principals) and perspective.

You'll love it if you appreciate baseball history, and who doesn't? And I'll give my copy to the first person who e-mails me - at kdavidoff@newsday.com - with the correct answer to this question:

Who made the last out in the final Giants home game at the Polo Grounds?

Here are the contest rules.

--UPDATE, 2:16 p.m.: Kranepool knew that Dusty Rhodes made the last out in that final Giants home game of 1957. Rhodes grounded out to shortstop, completing a 9-1 loss to Pittsburgh.
