ATT Park in San Francisco was the next baseball stadium on the list to check off the 2012 summer schedule. Surrounded by water, city and two bridges, the ballpark is a spectacular place to enjoy an evening of The National Pastime.
The 2010 World Champion Giants were hosting the (surprisingly) cellar dwelling Rockies in the first of a three game series. One of my favorite (multiple) Cy Young Winning pitchers was on the mound, Tim Lincecum, so this added another layer of good times, compounded with Ramsay lining up some choice seats behind home plate!
Although I’d visited this stadium before, the mandatory walk around was in order to get a feel for the structure, check out each corner of the nose bleed seats (which are usually some of the best seats in the house in any stadium) and run across the interesting fan base and spectators two teams will draw in on any given night.
Lincecum pitched good enough to win, but with zero run support the Rockies took home the W on a chilly San Fran evening. Blotto
Why the photos of the kayaks? Beyond the right field wall is McCovey Cove...each game there's an assortment of floating spectators waiting for the home run ball...61 and counting lifetime of AT&T Park. All photos by Blotto ©Dean Blotto Gray / Blotto Photto 2012
