I booked our flights to San Francisco in early June and called my parents that we were planning to visit over the July 4th weekend. My mom, knowing I would want to go to a Giants game and not a believer in scalping tickets outside the park, logged onto the Giants website and discovered they were selling $32 face value tickets for $12.50 each (you have to buy at least 4 tickets plus a $25 Chevron Gift Card for a total of $75).
