First Visit to AT&T Park

AT&T Park ranks as one of the most scenic stadiums in all of Major League Baseball. Home of the San Francisco Giants since 2000, the park has been home to some amazing games and memorable milestones including the 700th home run hit by Barry Bonds. If you are soon going to be a first time visitor to a ball game at AT&T Park, the inside scoop on the stadium below might help you enjoy your visit there just a little bit more.


Test Your Baseball Skills
At AT&T Park you can proudly display your baseball talent at a batting cage or a pitching cage surrounded by dozens of spectators. The cages provide you with recorded evidence of your hitting strength and speed and accuracy of your pitching. Batting and pitching cages are in an area on field level just behind centerfield. If you enter from the Marina Gate you can be the first in line at the baseball skills cages and spend a fun half-hour before the game.

Come Early
Generally, the gates at AT&T Park are opened two hours prior to game time. Going early will allow you to beat the rush when it comes to parking and foot crowds and it will also allow you to watch the Giants and also the visiting teams take their batting practice. Most importantly, coming early to the Giants game allows you to get some great pictures of McCovey Cove and explore the stadium.

Giants Team Store
Called the Giants Dugout Stores, the team stores have an extensive collection of jerseys, hats, t-shirts, hoodies, jackets and even memorabilia game tickets. The stores also allow you to personalize many of the novelty items for a unique souvenir that you will be proud to display. During game days, the store is opened up two hours before game time and remains open until 1 hour after game time.

China Basin Park
The China Basin Park is a fantastic area that you will find right next to the foul pole on right field. The park has several interesting attractions open for fans to view. You can see a snapshot of the San Francisco Giants from any year in the team’s history in Major League Baseball. Bronze markers chronicle the important milestones for the team over the years. Within this Park you will also be able to see McCovey Point, a small area that plays tribute to Willie McCovey, complete with a statue and other tribute items.

Coca-Cola Fan Lot
The Coca-Cola Fan Lot at AT&T Park is a fun place for kids. The lot has an 80 foot slide, the world’s largest baseball glove and a small baseball field complete with bases for little kids. Children are allowed to run the bases and pose for photos on the mini-diamond. Also look for special photo booths and a concession where doting parents can buy their children a personalized Giants mascot doll made according to their preferences.

Tailgating
Tailgating is allowed in parking lot C and lot D. AT&T Park management is very strict about letting you tailgate only in a single, small parking spot. Fans are not allowed to extend any tailgate equipment, tents, or vehicles beyond one allocated parking stall. If you have a large group that would like to organize a tailgate party, you are advised to call 415-972-2209 to make arrangements in advance.
