Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants

11 August 2009 No Comment

If you are coming from the suburbs south of San Francisco to a Giants game it may make the most sense to take Caltrain to AT&T Park rather than drive. That is what I did Monday night on the way to game one of the three game series between the Dodgers and Giants.

Obtaining Tickets
A main area for buying Giants tickets from scalpers is directly in front of the Caltrain station after getting off the train. I offered $10 for tickets from the scalpers but nobody would accept my offer. Then I waited to see if any fans had extra tickets but nobody did so I walked the few blocks to AT&T Park.

I had just past the Willie Mays statue headed for the ticket office, when I passed a group of three people with four tickets. I asked if they had an extra and the man said he did. He handed me the ticket ($25 face value) and I told him thank you. A free ticket!

The Game
The Dodgers used a four-run 4th inning to defeat the Giants 4-2. San Francisco’s manager, Bruce Bochy, was ejected after arguing two calls with first base umpire Bill Hohn. The first came in the 3rd inning and the second in the 5th inning. Both calls were out calls in favor of the Dodgers, but it appeared the Giants should have been called safe in both cases.

Manny Ramirez was booed by the crowd each time he came to the plate in Ramirez’s first game in San Francisco since coming back from his 50-game suspension after violating baseball’s drug rules.
