Open since 2000, the Oracle Park: San Francisco is home to the MLB’s San Francisco Giants
. The baseball stadium was envisioned, built and paid for by the Giants owner Peter Magowan, who, together with a group of San Francisco business leaders, wanted to help the Giants stay put in San Francisco by building them a new ballpark. It was the first privatively financed ballpark in Major League Baseball after Dodger Stadium was built in 1962. Since then, Oracle Park has hosted all the San Francisco Giants’ home games and World Series games along with professional and collegiate football games, American Idol auditions, operas, special events, and live music concerts.
An architectural landmark with fantastic views of the bay as well as the city’s skyline, Oracle Park has a seating capacity of 41,915, and a standing room capacity of 1,500. The steel and brick structure features two 122-foot clock towers, and pyramid-shaped roofs topped by 45-foot-tall flagpoles. A statue of Willie Mays, one of the greatest players in baseball history, can be found at its home plate entrance. The three-tier grandstand has 24 seat sections with 600 flat-panel high-definition TVs located throughout the park, and a 103-foot-wide HD video/scoreboard behind the centerfield fence. There are dozens of concession stands, bistros and food carts located throughout the park serving traditional ballpark fare as well as a wide variety of specialty food reflecting the unique culinary culture that the city is known for. There is so much to discover at the park that taking a tour of the facility is a must. Tours are offered all year-round.
One of the most beautiful cities in the country, San Francisco welcomes about 25 million visitors annually. These visitors are lured by its top attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz Island, Lombard Street, Ghirardelli Square, the Exploratorium, Pier 39, and a whole lot more. Be warned, first time visitors of the city: It’s easy to fall in love with San Francisco, and you might just leave your heart behind!
