  • Pablo Sandoval Update: Is the Panda Trading Rice for Beans?

    November 22, 2014 – If Rice-A-Roni is truly the San Francisco treat, it sounds like there could be a lot more of it left to consume around AT&T Park next year if Pablo Sandoval takes his appetite to Boston. A deal has reportedly been offered in the area of 5 years, $95 million for the clutch-hitting third baseman.

    Good news for Bay-area rice lovers. Bad news for Boston-area Baked Bean lovers.

    Bad, bad news for Bay-area Panda lovers. Stay tuned…

    November 24, 2014 [UPDATE] – The Panda has reportedly opted for Beans over Rice. Allegedly, the Padres were in the running too, but were they ever really? Farewell to a Cactus Leaguers legend. We’ll miss you, Pablo. We hear grapefruits taste better than cacti, so you have that to look forward to.

  • San Francisco Giants Release 2015 Spring Training Schedule

    November 19, 2014 – It’s only been 22 days since the trophy was hoisted, champagne corks were popped, and the Maddest of Bums put his stamp on baseball history as the San Francisco Giants were crowned World Series Champions for the third time in five seasons, but the Giants are already laying the groundwork for a repeat run to glory, having released their 2015 Spring Training schedule today.

    The Spring season of games kicks off on March 3 against Bay-area friendlies, the Oakland Athletics in Mesa, and concludes on April 1, with the Giants hosting the Cleveland Indians in Scottsdale. The tentative schedule has the Giants playing games on 29 dates throughout March and into April. Key games include a pair of rematches with World Series opponents, the Kansas City Royals on March 22nd at Surprise Stadium and again on March 23 at the Giants’ home training facility, Scottsdale Stadium. San Francisco will also face division rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers on three separate dates throughout their Spring campaign.

    Winning breeds enthusiasm – something Giants fans have in abundance. If you’re planning a trip to the desert this March, be sure to have a Scottsdale home game on your lineup card. You’ll be in for loads of entertainment. Giants fans are known to travel well and are always certain to create a dynamic, fun atmosphere for watching a ballgame. We recommend sparing a few extra bucks and securing an all-inclusive food/drink ticket in the Charro Lodge if you can get one. You can bet The Wolfpack will be doing the same.

    Single-game tickets for games at Scottsdale Stadium will go on sale Jan. 13 and canĀ  be purchased by phone at 1-877-4SFGTIX, online, or in person at either the Giants box office at AT&T Park or all Giants Dugout Stores.

    If purchasing in Arizona, tickets will be sold at the Scottsdale Stadium box office.

    As a bonus to the Giants faithful, the team also offers the only officially endorsed travel packages to Spring Training in the Cactus League. Packages include game tickets, hotel accomodations and ground transportation. For more information, fans can call 800-670-0858 or visit www.sfgiants.com.
