Baseball match at AT&T Stadium, San Francisco, California



Recently when I was in San Francisco, one of my office friend planned a visit to AT&T Park for Baseball match. I had never watched baseball match in my life but certainly it was a great opportunity to watch it live and also experience the environment in a baseball stadium.

As we entered into the AT&T Park in San Francisco and located our seats, I was super happy to see the location and the view from our seat. The stadium was very well lit and on other side we could see the Bay & ships/cruises roaming around.

There was still some time for match to start. So we got some stuff to eat and drink.

Baseball is a bat & ball game played between two opposing teams who take turns batting and fielding. The game proceeds when a player on the fielding team, called the pitcher, throws a ball which a player on the batting team tries to hit with a bat. The objectives of the batting team are to hit the ball into the field of play, and to run the bases—having its runners advance counter-clockwise around four bases to score what are called "runs". The objective of the fielding team is to prevent batters from becoming runners, and to prevent runners' advance around the bases. A run is scored when a runner legally advances around the bases in order and touches home plate. The team that scores the most runs by the end of the game is the winner.

Kristian Nairn who is popularly known as Hodor in Game of Thrones was also there at the match who came to the pitch before teams started playing at AT&T Stadium. Since he is also a DJ, he also played music during the game.

When I was watching the match I was wondering which is these games came first into existence - Cricket or Baseball. Some of the aspects are same in both these games although Cricket requires more physical strength in my opinion. Cricket matches are longer, huge ground to cover and fielding in cricket takes lot of effort. At the same time, I found Baseball a difficult game to play because of it's rules.

One of my colleagues was constantly telling me about the rules around - how they make runs, what happens if the batsman misses 3 balls, what all situations are considered foul etc. During the match I could appreciate the game but I couldn't stay for the whole match. Which is not surprising for me, because I hardly watch Cricket match as well.

So if you are in San Francisco and haven't watched Baseball match, do check out if any Baseball match happening at AT&T Stadium. It's worth an evening experience in the city.

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -

  1. Manage your waste well and don’t litter
  2. Use dustbins. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.
  3. Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.
  4. Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.
  5. Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite.
