The Giants Community Fund's field renovation program is named in honor of Peter Magowan for his leadership in building the Giants organization and its community outreach over 16 seasons. Magowan stepped down as the Giants president and managing general partner in October 2008.
The Peter A. Magowan Fields for Kids program reaches out to underserved communities where the Junior Giants program exists in order to enhance recreational opportunities and create safer places to play. The program includes the full renovations of up to two fields each year with plans to facilitate a small grants process to assist with upgrades such as a new backstop or fresh sod for the infield.
Since 1995, the Giants Community Fund has worked with Giants players and partners such as the Good Tidings Foundation to refurbish more than 23 youth baseball fields.
