Too Rich for Me

The Giants are playing a "traditional doubleheader" (two games, one admission, as opposed to most modern double-headers, where they clear the park and you need another ticket for the second game) on Tuesday in order to make up a rained-out game with the Cincinnati Reds. Because the rained-out game was in Cincinnati, the first game (4:05 PM start) will be a little odd in that the Reds will be the home team, batting second and wearing their home uniforms. The timing should be better for Reds fans at home, in that they won't have to be up after midnight to see the whole game.

I'd like to take in that pair of games, but the least-expensive seats are $30 standing room only, and $60 for the straight-away center-field bleachers. Although one could say it's a bargain (and it would be), there's no way I could stand through two games, and I'm not sure I'm up to six-plus hours in the bleachers.

Clearly, I'm spoiled by the good seats at reasonable prices at Reno Aces games. If only the Aces were the Giants affiliate instead of Arizona's! Still, I got to see Kensuke Tanaka before he made it up to the Big Show when the Fresno Grizzlies (the Giants AAA affiliate) came to Reno.
