The name may be different, but the game remains the same. Formerly Pac Bell Park and SBC Park, AT&T Park is the first privately financed ballpark in Major League Baseball since Dodger Stadium in 1962. The San Francisco Giants' home features an inspiring nine-foot (2.74-meter) statue of America's greatest living ballplayer, Willie Mays, at the north-west corner of the stadium. An 80-foot (24.3-meter) Coca-Cola bottle with playground slides and a miniature AT&T Park, located behind left field, has become a magnet for kids of all of ages. Its uber-convenient location near public transportation is rivaled by no other sports complex around.
What a great Baseball park!!! One of the best, if not THE best baseball parks in the country. Very San Francisco in style, right down to the concessions and even the seating signs. For those with childern, it is very kid friendly. There is a mini-ATT-park where park employees pitch to little ones who can even view themselves on a mini-jumbotron (ignore the oxymoron). Also a slide inside the big "Coke bottle".
I live in San Diego where we also have a new Baseball park that people rave about, but it in no way can compare with the charm of San Francisco's ATT park.
I took a non-baseball fan along with me on my last visit and she LOVED it.
This ballpark has everything going for it. It's in beautiful condition, the location is fantastic (the trolly/trains/busses pass right in front), the scenery of SF Bay is captivating, the fans are having a great time, the garlic fries smell great (they taste so-so), and the ushers don't bug folks like me who want to go all around and see things from different spots.
The only drawback is the ticket prices, starting at $13.00. They're high compared to most other MLB stadiums.
If you like baseball and are ever in SF, go see the Giants. But, wear warm clothing.
Great atmosphere, even better food, and the best baseball experience in the country. This stadium was so impressive I arrived two hours before the game to check out everything it offered. Wireless hotspots covering the entire park added to the experience. Great views of the game from virtually every seat even from outside where a few hundred local fans can watch the games for free. If you love baseball you will love this park. Took my father to two games during Father's Day Weekend and I am now his favortie child;) Get out and enjoy some live baseball action at SBC Park.
San Francisco's SBC Park, nestled alongside San Francisco Bay and adjacent to downtown, is a jewel. Whether you are a baseball nut, a fan of San Francisco quisine, or just looking for a fun place to hang out in the City by the Bay, you will find something to like about the home of the San Francisco Giants.
In its first few years of existence, it was nearly impossible to reserve tickets, but now the park is now more accessible as a spur of the moment place to go. Great views of the game from within the park, and spectacular vistas of the bay, bridges and Oakland hills, are included with the price of a ticket. For food, garlic fries and microbrew beers top the list, but the choices range from the traditional hot dog to exotic Caribbean dishes. And if you are inclined to roam rather than sit, the promenade around the outfield is a busy and interesting place to stroll or wait for a home run ball. It is kid-friendly too, with climbing and game opportunities for the young and young at heart.
Dress warmly on summer nights, and be prepared for some San Francisco fog, also included with the price of your ticket.
This beautiful old-fashioned ball park is a treat. I'm really a baseball fan, but I've enjoyed by several outings here. The ball park has a retro brick style and from just about any seat in the park, you'll be able to see the SF Bay (especially beautiful at sunset!). There's a fun playground for kids (the Coca-cola bottle) and of course there are *great* food concessions (I love the garlic fries!!)
Don't forget to bring warm clothes!!
The nicest ballpark in the country. Even in August & July -BRING WARM CLOTHES! Get there early and plan on walking around outside & inside the park. Great place for young baseball fans. You can buy tickets thru Giants website but you get charged exorbitant fees - better through Ebay or Craigslist. Before the game go to Amici's, forget Momos, for pizza and antipasto plate. We like sitting down the right field line, upper deck, at night games - great view of the Bay Bridge & McCovey Cove.
This place is beautiful. Even for non baseball fans it's a great place to be. The scenery is amazing. The food is delicious but a little costly, but what ball park food isn't? It's one of the most beautiful ballparks today. Theres no way you can come to San Fran and not visit this place, it's beautiful during day games (don't forgot your sun screen) and just as beautiful at night (don't forget your coat) with all the ballpark lights shining..even if it's not baseball season, you can take the tour which is an awesome experience for any baseball fan.
