Tonight is Game 2 of the 2007 season for the Giants, and the club knows that not everyone could get a ticket (or the day off) for Opening Day, so they try to make the first night game special as well with Opening Night. In fact, the whole homestand is designated as Opening Week, with special events and giveaways for each game.
Tonight there will be fireworks, then a cool Barry Zito poster giveaway on Thursday night, the first poster in a series of six this year. There’s even a special ticket package, the Poster Pack, just for those games.
On Friday night, when the Dodgers come to town for the first time this season and the first Orange Friday of the year, the first 40,000 fans will get orange foam fingers. Saturday is Kids Opening Day, with a pregame concert by the Sippy Cups and the first 6,000 kids getting a really neat Beary Limited Edition Bear from Build-a-Bear, complete with a Giants cap, orange ribbon and Giants logo on the foot.
The homestand wraps up Sunday with Barry Zito’s second start and the ever-popular magnet schedule giveaway.
