Last week, my father and i went to a ball game at AT&T Park.
"AT&T" is not very catchy, and i dislike saying it. I wish someone else would buy that thing so we wouldn't be bored by saying "AT&T Park." Although, if there were to be a name change, there would certainly be a lot of signage that would need to be changed.
I wouldn't want to be in charge of that.
All the Giants paraphernalia you could want.
After taking a long time picking out just the right shirts for my nieces, (nieces, if you are reading this, you didn't hear it from me.) dad and i took a walk around the perimeter of the park, where we saw these signs about every 20 feet. I don't quite know what they could be referring to. Birds? Planes? Spit wads? Does anyone have any ideas? If a spit wad does happen to hit you and knock you out, AT&T Park won't be held responsible?
But after that, we took a tour of the park. This is the visitor's dugout.
Dad is seen here making a phone call to the bullpen. And thank goodness, something really needed to be done.
I thought i might pitch in before the game.
I think it is important to do my part for the Giants.
After the dugout and the indoor batting cages, and a quick stop to take a picture, we hiked to the very top of the stadium, to the View Box.
And here's the View.
From the View, we worked our way down to the press box.
It was so cool and HUGE. I was surprised at it's vastness anyway.
This is on a fancy level. You know, the level where you pay thousands of dollars to have your own suite for the game. If only i could remember what they are called. Anyway, this totally cool painting was found there.
These folks were getting ready to catch a homer.
I didn't get a picture of it, but we saw a guy who wouldn't be bothered with a boat.
He had a fishing rod with a net attached. I think that is the way to go.
That screen is just so HUGE.
That was the only reason for this picture.
