The Boys of Summer at AT&T Park

b.gameThis weekend we went to our first Giants baseball game of the season at AT&T Park here in foggy San Francisco. Well actually it was actually quite sunny and unusually hot this weekend, so we thought there would be no better way to spend our Saturday than by eating garlic fries and watching some baseball.

This isn’t just one of my son’s favorite summer pastimes, but mine as well. We both love the game, the food, and this fabulous stadium. AT&T Park is one of those newer, fancier stadiums with some great view of the San Francisco skyline and the bay. Don’t worry if you can’t afford the club seats either, I think some of the best views are from the top seats. Another good place to sit with kids is in either the arcade or bleacher section. Both of these sections make it easy to get up during the game and take a break at the trolley car or the kids’ area by the Coca-Cola bottle.

Most of the cheap seats go for between $20 and $25 dollars and on Monday through Thursday they have some $10 outfield tickets available. You’re allowed to bring in your own food and drinks to the park (no glass allowed). If you’re just passing through town as a tourist and want to check in on a game without actually having to buy tickets, walk up to the open archways of the right field wall and watch the game free of charge.
