Next time you're in the Bay, make sure you check out the house that Barry built! We got the scoop on AT&T Park!

AT&T Park - History

After over two years of construction, AT&T Park opened just days before the start of the 2000 MLB season. The park replaced Candlestick Park, which served as the Giants' home field for 40 years. AT&T Park is located in the waterfront area of San Francisco known as the China Basin. Originally the ballpark was named Pac Bell Park after the local telephone company, but in 2005 the stadium was changed to AT&T Park; the park's new sponsor.

AT&T Park - Atmosphere

AT&T Park is one of the nicest ball parks you will ever see. Located in the heart of downtown and overlooking the water, this magnificent stadium is perfectly located. Whenever Barry Bonds hits one way over the right field wall, you will see canoes and boats in the water ready to retrieve the ball! The ballpark also has great artwork - everything from the giant glass coke bottle and glove in left field, to the Willie Mays statue in front of the building. AT&T Park is also unique because the right field wall is only 309 feet away. But because the wall is so high, a player must actually hit the equivalent of 370 feet in order to hit a home run over that right field wall!

AT&T Park - Notable Events

AT&T Park has had its fair share of historic baseball moments occur there. Barry Bonds broke the single season home run record there in 2001, and on August 7, 2007, Barry hit his 756th career home run, which broke Hank Aaron's all time home run record. AT&T Park also hosted the 2002 World Series, where the Giants lost to the Anaheim Angels in seven games. Other than baseball, the stadium plays host to a number of other events such as the San Francisco Opera, Cirque de Soleil, the Emerald Bowl, supercross events, as well as many different concerts.
