Although the Seals were a minor league team, they possessed a talent that far surpassed minor league standards. The Seals were home to many future Major League Hall of Fame players such as Joe DiMaggio and Paul Waner. More famous for his time as a manager than a player, Lefty O’Doul is celebrated as a legend in the Bay area for winning five pennants during his time. The Seals existed as an organization from 1903 to 1957, and during that time amounted to thirteen pennant championships and multiple league runner-ups. The Fans celebrated the Seals like no other minor league team in the Pacific Coastal League by setting an attendance record of 670,000 in 1948, which stood for almost forty years. The Fans also enjoyed watching games between their cross-town rivals, the Oakland Oaks. On some special Sundays during baseball season, the Oaks and the Seals would play doubleheaders against each other. Games would be played in the morning at Seals Stadium and then the teams would travel to Emeryville to play the second game that afternoon. The Seals' popularity lasted until 1957 when the New York Giants moved to San Francisco and the Seals became a farm team in Phoenix, Arizona.
