A long walk around the ballpark during our last visit to see the Giants in 2011. With record setting injuries, they missed the mark this year, but we were happy to go and cheer them on anyway, as they held their heads up high and played hard for an exciting win. I watched it from a dozen locations as I took a five-inning walking tour around the park, looking for a different perspective or two to capture with one of the two cameras I toted around. AT&T park is so fun to wander in, and is clearly one of - or thee - most beautiful ballparks in the nation. See more photos from this tour through the photos link on my baseball blog page: http://baseballnotes.net Go Giants! We'll be back...
OK, we're here and ready for the game. Such a palace, such a ballpark. Does God live here?
We didn't get the Division Crown nor entry into the playoffs, but we were pleased to be a part of the crowd that helped break the 128 year record for most attendance during a Giants season.
McCovey Cove and the lower promenade - beyond the right field wall. Hit one here and you get on the Splash Hit counter on the Right Field Wall. Less than 60 homers have gone there over 10 years -
and of course Barry hit over 75% of them...

Can't wait to go back in 2012!
