about AT&T Park

AT&T Park is a ballpark used for Major League Baseball, located in the South of Market neighborhood of San Francisco, California. It has been the home of the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball since 2000 and boasts a seating capacity of 41,915 seats.

For the first three years of its life this park was known as Pacific Bell Park, then renamed SBC Park in 2003. SBC was acquired by ATT and so another name change ensued - AT&T Park in 2006.

AT&T Park was constructed to replace aging Candlestick Park as San Francisco's home stadium. Its design is classic urban ballpark with an old-time feel, inspired by Wrigley Field and Fenway Park and perfectly integrated into the city skyline. It manages to evoke nostalgia without being cloying, providing modern amenities while retaining a majestic sense of permanence. This venue is already a much-loved symbol of the city, taking advantage of a gorgeous bayside location to provide the best views in the majors.

There have been many exciting events at the stadium including its opening series which featured the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Giants, who were swept in three games. Barry Bonds, the veteran Giants outfielder, also contributed to the fan fervor by hitting his 500th home run at the park in 2001. The park also hosted games three through five of the 2002 World Series against the Anaheim Angels, the 2007 MLB All-Star Game and others.

Other entertaining events, both sports and music events hosted at AT&T Park include the Emerald Bowl and East-West Shrine postseason football games, international soccer matches, and motor-cross races. It is also the only MLB ballpark to host opera simulcasts. The 2007 All-Star Game was played there. In addition to general seating at AT&T Park, the stadium also contains 68 luxury suites, 5,200 club seats on the club level, and an additional 1,500 club seats at the field level.

It's safe to say that AT&T Park is a source of pride in the Bay Area - today and for many generations to come.
