AT&T Park is one of the most beautiful venues in all of professional baseball. Situated directly on the San Francisco Bay, the ballpark offers stunning, unobstructed views of the entire surrounding area. Furthermore, the park's old fashioned feel, complete with brick walls, shorter dimensions, and seats close to the on-field action, make it a wonderful place to see a ball game. At 309 feet on the right field line, the park has one of the shortest porches for left-handed hitters in the game, but this results in yet another unique feature of the ballpark: the splash hit. Over 60 home run balls and counting have landed in McCovey cove beyond the right field wall for a "splash hit" since the park opened.

Since the San Francisco Giants moved there in 2000 from their former home at Candlestick Park, they have sold out countless games due to the popularity of the team and the park. In its early days, AT&T Park was the playground of Barry Bonds, who relished both the short right field line and the deep right-center field gap known as triples alley. One lesser known thing about AT&T Park is that it served as the temporary home of the California Golden Bears football team for one season while their home field, California Memorial Stadium, was refurbished.
