With less than a week to go until Major League Baseball kicks off it’s 2015 season, we’re just as excited as you.
Baseball reminds us all of warm summer days, the crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd and the pop of the glove. But it also means sitting in traffic, waiting in line to get in, and paying a lot to park.
But there’s a way to game the system. Like a little extra pine-tar or a view to the catcher from second base, an online parking reservation can give you a leg up. If you are looking for the next big thing since online ticketing, look no further.
The Giants and Dodgers will meet at AT&T Park this weekend in the midst of a neck-and-neck race for first place in the NL West. Here’s a look at their seasons so far:
San Francisco Giants
The Giants started 2014 on a tear, racking up wins behind hot bats and solid pitching. They struggled through the month of June, however, and dropped 19 out of 26 games starting June 9th. The biggest culprit was power hitting. The Giants averaged more than one homerun per game before their slump, but hit only 17 in the 32 games leading up to the all star break. Giants fans, however, can be cautiously optimistic after an offensively solid series in Miami to start the second half.
SF Giants parking is one of the most popular items on our site. Here’s an analysis of how things are going in McCovey Cove as we head into the 2014 All Star break.
The Giants started this year with a bang. For several weeks in May, they were practically unbeatable, and held baseball’s best winning percentage for a while. They are maintaining strong position for contention, and thanks to their stellar April and May, still hold the fourth best record in the National League as of July 9th.
But the first half of the season hasn’t been without trouble for San Francisco. Since the 9th of June, the Giants went 7-19, allowing their rival the Dodgers to capture first place for the first time since the first week of the season.
Some ye-of-little-faith types are already throwing in the towel, certain that this June swoon augers doom for SF’s ball club. My how short our memories are of the 2012 playoff season?
The east coast has the Yankees and the Red Sox, but on the west side, it’s all about the Dodgers and Giants. The teams have been at the forefront of every major trend in baseball history. Throughout the days of John McGraw’s dominant New York Giants, Jackie Robinson’s bold and heroic stand against the color barrier, and baseball’s expansion across the United States, the two teams have battled intensely for regional and national dominance for more than 100 years.

Baseball fans are shrugging off the cold as the season heats up quickly. This Friday the defending world champion San Francisco Giants play the St. Louis Cardinals at AT&T Park.
