The Giants are BACK by the Bay

Photographer Ron LeValley captured 2 Giants fans in McCovey Cove. The gull wants hot dogs and Cracker Jacks.

Kudos to SF Giants fan/photographer Ron LeValley for capturing one of the many creative ways San Franciscans find to get first-hand reports during home games! Our guys are back in AT&T Park-by-the-Bay  April 8-17.

It’s called McCovey Cove, the destination of numerous boat companies, picnic sails, and private tugs to be close to the game and hear it live bayside.

SF Giants vs. Cincinnati Reds

Barry ZitoIt’s a fun summer night out at the ballpark as the Giants finish off a three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds, says Goldstar.com, which is offering lower box seats for the July 24 game at reduced prices. Woo hoo!  Get out your orange and black hats, San Francisco.

July 24: SF Giants vs. Cincinnati Reds, and The Giants are right in the thick of the NL West playoff race, thanks to the hitting heroics of Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval, and pitching prowess of Madison Bumgarner. They’re a formidable team, but they face tough opposition in the Reds, who are fielding one of baseball’s best teams, led by former National League MVP Joey Votto.

SF Hero Worship

Barry ZitoSounds like an epic story: Giants vs. Tigers.  And Barry Zito is the battle’s hero.  Or was it Pablo Sandoval?  Take your pick, San Franciscans.  There were 43,000 of us at the ball park yesterday.  If you want to do anything else in SF tonight, maybe you should invest in TiVo to watch the TV highlights.
