Giants Fanatic

The Force Was Not With the Giants

I did attend Star Wars Day at the San Jose Giants (California league A level affiliate of the San Francisco Giants) on Saturday, where Ken Patterson had organized a BASFA day at the ballpark.

Alas, while the Force may have been with us, it wasn't with the Giants, who fell to the Modesto Nuts, 14-4. Still, we had a great time, and I hope to make another visit with the club maybe next season. We had lots of room to spread out and relax in the VIP box, and the cost was less than it would have been for upper deck seats and food at Emperor Norton Field at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Not that I'll turn down a reasonable chance to go see the Big Giants play, but minor league baseball has considerable attractions. Which reminds me that Lisa and I need to find a chance to go watch the Reno Aces play this season, too.
