In Game

The Giants have been one of the hottest teams in baseball taking home three World Series trophies in a six-years, commonly referred to as the Bay area dynasty.  AT&T Park is only 309 feet down the right field line meaning those of you sitting there will have an excellent opportunity to snag a souvenir ball or two.  

Another rarely seen feature of the stadium comes from sitting near the outfield corners on the first deck. Most stadiums have placed the bullpens for both teams’ pitching staffs inside the outfield wall or below a section of seating.  However, much like Wrigley Field, AT&T has placed its bullpens in foul territory allowing fans sitting near them to get an up-close glimpse of what a 95 mph fastball looks like, or how hard a slider can break.  It is truly a great experience for even the most casual of baseball fans as you gain a feeling for what it is like to stand in the box against some of the great hurlers in the game.

World Series Trophies

The Giants have had recent success in winning three World Series championships in 2010, 2012, and 2014. As a result, the World Series trophies are on display for fans on the Virgin America Club Level behind home plate. Stop by and check out the trophies during your next trip to AT&T Park.

@Cafe

In the 2013 season, the San Francisco Giants opened a social media cafe behind the centerfield bleachers. The cafe showcases fan social media posts from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, which are monitored by the Giants organization.

Coca-Cola Fan Lot

Behind the left field bleachers is the Coca-Cola Fan lot, featuring an 80-foot long Coca-Cola bottle with playground slides that blow bubbles and light up when the Giants score.

Little Giants Park

Near the Coca-Cola Fan lot is the Little Giants Park, a miniature baseball diamond which serves as a sort of minor league tryout for Pee-Wee baseball.

Old Fashioned Baseball Mit

Directly to the right of the massive Coke bottle is the “Giant 1927 Old-Time Four-Fingered Baseball Glove”. Made of steel and fiberglass, this symbol from baseball’s history stands proudly in AT&T Park.

McCovey Cove

Named after Giants first baseman Willie McCovey, McCovey Cove is one of the best features of AT&T Park. McCovey Cove is a section of the San Francisco Bay and as of September 25, 2014, 68 “splash hits” have been knocked into the Cove by Giants players (35 belonging to the legendary Barry Bonds). Each hit is tallied on an electric counter on the right field wall. Because of the pier behind center field, ferries, boats, and kayaks are often tied up and drop off fans to the park. You’ll also see fans taking to the waters with big fishing nets in hopes of collecting a home run ball.

Right Field Wall

One of the most prominent features of AT&T Park is the 24-foot-high wall dedicated to San Francisco Giants legend Willie Mays. Sitting atop the wall are four pillars with fountains that burst out jets of water when the Giants hit a home run, win a game, and at the end of the National Anthem.

K-Ville

Foul territory down the right field line is known as K-Ville because of the letter K is the symbol for a strikeout. In this section (more specifically Seat 1, Row 1), a dedicated fan is in charge of flipping the first K placard when the Giants pitcher gets the first strikeout. For any new fan who gets lucky enough to sit in this section, the usher will explain the tradition and rules of K-Ville (including a five beer maximum for anyone sitting in the K row!)

Singing “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”

After Giants victories, don’t rush out of the stadium immediately following the game. Instead, stick around and sing this beloved song.

Fight Songs

  1. I Left My Heart in San Francisco

    This hit by Tony Bennett is played after Giants victories.

    The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gay
    The glory that was Rome is of another day
    I’ve been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan
    I’m going home to my city by the Bay

    I left my heart in San Francisco
    High on a hill, it calls to me
    To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars
    The morning fog may chill the air, I don’t care

    My love waits there in San Francisco
    Above the blue and windy sea
    When I come home to you, San Francisco
    Your golden sun will shine for me

  2. Dont Stop Believing

    Journey’s popular hit Don’t Stop Believing was the theme song for the Giants 2010 World Series run. It is now played during the eighth inning of games in which the Giants are tied or trailing.

    Just a small town girl
    Livin’ in a lonely world
    She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere
    Just a city boy
    Born and raised in south Detroit
    He took the midnight train goin’ anywhere

    A singer in a smokey room
    A smell of wine and cheap perfume
    For a smile they can share the night
    It goes on and on, and on, and on

    [Chorus]
    Strangers waiting
    Up and down the boulevard
    Their shadows searching in the night
    Streetlight people
    Living just to find emotion
    Hiding somewhere in the night

    Working hard to get my fill
    Everybody wants a thrill
    Payin’ anything to roll the dice
    Just one more time
    Some will win, some will lose
    Some were born to sing the blues
    Oh, the movie never ends
    It goes on and on, and on, and on

    [Chorus]

    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on to the feelin’
    Streetlights, people

    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on
    Streetlight people

    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on to the feelin’
    Streetlight people
