AT&T Park

AT&T Park in San Francisco California is home to the San Francisco Giants.  I chose AT&T Park for many reasons but one main one is the view.  It is one of the best views in Major League Baseball because it overlooks the San Francisco Bay.  The Right field wall sits 365 feet from home plate and only stretches a few more before hitting the water of the bay.  Many home run balls have been hit into the water.  The park opened in 2000 making it a relatively new park in the MLB.  It has many modern amenities including free wifi and a video scoreboard in center field.  Fans flock to Giant’s games with a very strong fanbase including the World Series Champions 3 times in the last 7 years.
