The home of the San Francisco Giants.
One the goals in “The List” is to visit all 16 National League Ballparks and see the Giants play baseball. We started with the easiest one, AT&T Park. Watching the Giants play at home, as we frequently do, takes us just a short trip up the San Francisco Peninsula. Often we drive up to The City. This time, we took Caltrains.
AT&T Park is a beautiful park. It’s spot right on the Bay is unique and, for an urban ballpark, it very easy to get to. The Giants like to market AT&T as the best ballpark in baseball. There’s lot of competition to be “the best” amongst all of baseball’s new stadiums. I guess we will see for ourselves how AT&T ranks, at least amongst the National League parks, as our challenge continues.
The game featured Tim Lincecum vs the Phillies Cole Hamels. Lincecum pitched well but the Giants gave up the lead in the late innings and lost in extra frames.
The Giants record during our ballpark quest: 0-1
Food: Tres Agaves (try the bacon wrapped hot dog)
