Ladies and Gentlemen, the best time of the year has arrived. It is not because of the spring, neither because of the better weather; it’s because Baseball has just started!!!!!! Last Thursday was the opening game in the brand new home of the Miami Marlins, and it showed us a preview of a new and exciting season. This is coming after one of the most incredible two month season finale, where the Cardinals (team which I happen to be a fan of) made an amazing come back to become the Champion. For all of us, Baseball fans, last season will be remembered forever; particularly the fifth match of the division series between Cards and Phillies, or the game sixth of the epic world series, both instant classics.
I know that you might not be related to this amazing sport, but San Francisco is a big baseball fan. Actually, to be honest, if you are coming to this great city, you have to watch and live a Giants game “live”(either at the Stadium, or in one of the nice bars around). Giants are one of the most traditional and famous teams in the Major League Baseball. Originally from NY, they moved to SF in 1957 as part of the League expansion to California. The Giants were the 2010 Champions.
Following an excitement pre-season and a great first week, this Friday will be the first home match for the Giants. Even though the Giants have a slow start, they will definitely pick up this season. I really believe that they have a great team this year, and a nice chance to get to the post season. They will be playing at home from Friday till Wednesday, so come to support the Giants and enjoy a live game at the AT&T Park.
By the way, remember to support the amazing Panda…………
For tickets you might go to www.stubhub.com; or as I told you in the article, all bars around have a great ambient (never as the stadium, but it is a great substitute).
