I'm a Giants fan going back to 1979. I used to take the Sam trans bus to the games when I was a little kid. You could get a seat in the general admission seats(weird fenced off prison that was many yards back from the outfield fence(yes fence) for $2.50. If you were feeling particularly flush, you could get box seats along the left field line( this was the home side) for $11.50. You'd get to see the Giants lose(most likely) with seven thousand fans in the freezing cold( swirling hotdog wrappers and all), and just have a grand old time. But hey, you could see Willy Mccovey and Vida Blue play in the twilight of their careers. Jack clark was great to see and there was endless fun making fun of Jonnie LeMaster. Dropped out of serious fandome during my high school punk rock/deadhead days. Came back in nineteen ninety with a vengeance.

I am passionate about baseball's tradition, history and ritual, and the sport ain't too bad either. The Giants, being one of the oldest teams in baseball most definitely fit the tradition and history bill.

Go Giants!
