It shouldn’t be too tough to get tickets for the Giants’ three-game series against the Nationals this week, but if you’re looking for a great deal on either really cheap seats or really good seats, I’ve got a few tips.
First, the entire series features KNBR ticket specials, with seats in the View Reserved Outfield available for only $6.80. If you’re a fan of the Giants flagship radio station’s personalities, many of them will be at Thursday’s day game, working as members of the grounds crew, balldudes and peanut vendors, singing the national anthem, participating in pregame contests and more.
Wondered how people get to sit in those amazing seats right behind home plate and next to the dugouts? Well, some are available via a ticket auction run by the Giants with a portion of the proceeds going to the Giants Community Fund and Community Access Ticket Service. Select games, including some versus the Dodgers, are up for bid right now.
If you’re coming to the game Tuesday, bring $5 or a toy for the Giants’ Christmas in July Toy Drive and you’ll get a nifty orange Giants stocking. It’s also Family Safety Day, which usually entails an interesting safety festival along Terry Francois Boulevard. And if you’re a knitting enthusiast, get special tickets for Stitch-N-Pitch Night, a weirdly wildly popular event at ballparks across the country.
And Wednesday, finish off your set of Gamer posters with the Omar Vizquel version, given to the first 20,000 fans. It’s Law Enforcement Night, so come salute those who help keep us safe.
