“Home of the San Francisco Giants”
AT&T Park is a ballpark used for Major League Baseball. It is located in the South Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, California. Located at 24 Willie Mays Plaza, at the corner of Third and King Streets, it has served as the home of the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball since 2000. Originally named Pacific Bell Park, then renamed SBC Park in 2003 after SBC's acquisition of Pacific Bell, the stadium was ultimately christened AT&T Park in 2006 following SBC's merger with AT&T. The park also hosts the annual Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, a college football bowl game, and other occasional sporting and musical events. For the 2011 season, the park served as the home of the California Golden Bears football team.
This ballpark is one of the things I miss most about San Francisco. There isn’t a bad seat in the house, you can find Anchor Steam on tap, and, most importantly, it’s the home of the Giants.
You’ve probably heard about the wide variety of food. Ignore all that, and look for the Sheboygan Bratwurst vendor near the left field bleachers. 20 bucks will get you a Sheboygan and an Anchor Steam and that’s all you need. If you’re still hungry, try the garlic fries.
Don’t drive. Take the train—the N or T will get you there, if they’re running. Be prepared to fist-fight seagulls after the game.
Let’s go Giants!
Preface: I'm a Cincinnati Reds fan. AT&T Park is my favorite stadium in the country for a few reasons. 1) The bars outside are incredible for pregaming. 2) The nosebleeds have some of the best views in the entire Bay Area of not only the park but bay around. 3) The beer selection. I'm used to the major beer selection (Bud, Miller, etc). They obviously have these as well, but feature many more micro/local brews from around the area. It doesn't hurt that the Giants are a consistently good team so fans don't have to be fairweather. Disclaimer: like all things in SF, tickets aren't cheap even for super high up. Definitely try to grab a game if you're in town regardless of the opponent or who you support.
You should pregame at 21st Amendment or Zekes. Eat at Orlando's BBQ and get an order of garlic fries from one of the green booths. Your girlfriend will love you for that. Sit in sections 137-139 for your best chance to catch a home run ball (and sections 101-103, down the first base line for catching foul balls), and the views are pretty great.
This is the perfect ballpark for viewing baseball. The fans are very excited about their team, but nice to visitors. Try the seafood place behind center field!
Cool stadium, cool spot on the water. The seats at the very top freaked me out with nothing but chainlink behind them so I moved seats. Get the garlic fries and a beer. The garlic fries are so good. Also, that hint Coke bottle in the outfield? It's a slide.
