…I show that I attended a Giants-A’s game on this date and sat in the View Reserved section. This was not my first visit to the new park, but it was one of my earliest. My memory of the first year that the Giants were in the yard is that it was sold out every single day. It would still be a couple of years before Susan and I began to work in there.
I don’t dislike the A’s, but I’ve never been able to get much excited about them, even during the year when they had that incredible unbeaten run.
On the other hand, I loved watching this Giants team, even when they weren’t doing so hot. And of course they had a decent year in 2000. At least enough for us to have a little hope in mid-July.
