Did you know?

As we travel from one Major League Baseball stadium to the next, we are really enjoying how each stadium is completely different and has its own character, history, and architecture. Here are a few of the unusual facts about AT&T Park that we found especially interesting.

Facts Unique to
AT&T Park


Distance from Stands to Home Plate at AT&T Park:

At a distance of just 48 feet from the first row of seats to home plate, these lucky fans are actually 12 feet closer to the batter than the pitcher!


FOUR-FINGERED BASEBALL GLOVE

  • The glove is a 26-foot-high, 32-foot-wide and 12-foot-deep replica of a vintage 1927 four-fingered baseball mitt. It is 36 times the size of the original model and weighs 20,000 pounds.
  • The artists who crafted the glove went to great lengths to maintain the authentic look and feel of the original mitt. The surface is a flexible epoxy compound that was molded and treated to look like worn leather. The grommets are real brass and the stitching, done by hand, uses marine grade rope.

STATS

  • Capacity: 41,503 fans
  • Mascot: Lou Seal
  • Opening Day was on April 11th, 2000

THE GARDEN AT AT&T PARK

Located behind center field below the main scoreboard, the Garden at AT&T Park is a first-of-its-kind mini-farm and outdoor classroom. The Giants and Bon Appétit Management Company created the 4,320-square-foot Garden to provide a platform for community engagement and education as well as 50 kinds of fresh produce throughout the year.

Our Reflections on the Game

Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team

Thoughts from James


We like AT&T park because of the view and it’s a really nice stadium. Giants fans take their team seriously so being a Dodger fan in blue with orange and black all round wasn’t easy. The stadium staff are very friendly and helpful. The food choices on the club level are awesome! I had time to slide down the big Coca Cola bottle in the outfield, for 14 and under! The views and the passion for baseball make SF AT&T park a top spot for a baseball game!James

Christie’s Thoughts

It will be hard to beat this stadium going forward! AT&T has a beautiful view of the San Francisco Bay. Awesome seats, clean bathrooms and yummy food! Architecturally it’s great with a mix of old brick and a new feel.Christie
