“We had a ball!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

This park is home to the SF Giants' farm team. Being so close to the MLB team gives plenty of opportunities for big-leaguers on rehab assignments to be seen by the locals. But even without that, the games are fun, there are lots of games and give-aways for the kids, and the mascot is wild and crazy.

Tickets are very reasonable, though parking is $10 and food and drinks are ballpark priced. But we had a great time and recommend it!

“Thoroughly Enjoyable, Nice People”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

It's an older ballpark, but still a great place to watch a game. It's inexpensive, and the small stadium makes for an intimate baseball experience. The people who work there are extremely helpful and friendly, and the fans are easy going. The between-innings entertainment is always enjoyable, too.

“Fun and "inexpensive" night at the ball game”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

This is a minor league San Jose Giants baseball team......it is fun to go see them play. First, because you can see players perform spectacularly or you can see them make an error or two as this is minor league (they hope to learn to be good enough to go to professional).

The stadium is small enough so kids can run around and have fun. The barbecue here is spectacular. Real barbecue with lots of great things from burgers - chicken - ribs and so forth. Nice picnic tables so many go early before the game.

There are usually fun things going on between the innings - for example, the players try to smash the headlamps of a truck (and most do not)....Ah, what will happen next. There is during some of the innings " Beer Batter". This is where they designate one person on the opposing team to be the beer batter - when he comes up to bat, if he strikes out, then there is 2 for 1 beers. Watch the stands empty as people line up.

Its also relatively inexpensive since local vendors such as Orchard Supply gives out free tickets for a few of the games. Expect on those nights (or days) to have a lively crowd......

its a local event.....and its baseball at its finest (and worst)....
but you can always count if you like baseball, that you will enjoy being at the game.

“What a fun night for the whole family”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

My family and I were visiting other family members in San Jose for the week and we deceided to go see a baseball game. We had a great time the announcers kept everyone entertained. What made the event even better was that you are able to pick up FREE tickets to most games at the local stores.The only out of pocket expense was a $10.00 parking fee, but who's complaining when a family of 6 can see a great game for free. Seats were comfortable for bleachers and great vision of the field. You can purchase box seats, but, why bother. Food and drinks were very expensive, but, it always is at these types of events. If you plan on purchasing any food you should try the barbaque area, food slightly higher then at other sections but worth the extra cost. My recomendation is to get to the stadium and have some real family fun!
