The San Francisco are back in action at Oracle Park in 2021. Here you will find the San Francisco Giants schedule that includes all regular season home games this year. 

The home opener is on April 9 against the Colorado Rockies. They will be allowed to have fans at the game with a 22% capacity (roughly 9,000 fans). There are a few requirements the ballpark needs to follow in order to continue to allow in fans. 

All fans 12 and older must either show proof of full vaccination or have a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of the game you are attending. Here are a few more details on testing: 

  • If you are 18 and older, you can use the CLEAR Health Pass to link your negative test result for a seamless entry. You will find this free service on the CLEAR mobile app. 
  • You can also bring along an electronic or paper copy of your negative test result. 

Full vaccination means that you completed your vaccination regime at least two weeks prior to the game. You will need to show proof by either bringing along a paper copy or electronic copy of your vaccination card. The name on the card must match your ID.

    San Francisco Discounted Giants Tickets

    At times, you will find a limited number of discounted tickets available. I always check out the deals on these three sites before purchasing. 

    However, keep in mind that these discounted tickets are not the best seats in the house. They are perfect for those on a budget and wanting to attend a game. If you are looking for great seats for the game, then I recommend purchasing tickets from the links above.

    Goldstar: They often offer a variety of tickets throughout the season. Click here for find a current selection of discounted tickets.

    Oracle Park

    Oracle Park is a great place to watch a San Francisco Giants game. The park is still fairly new and sits right on the San Francisco Bay waterfront.

    The park is also easy to get to from the rest of San Francisco. There also several great restaurants and bars within two or three blocks of the stadium.

    What to Wear During the SF Giants Games

    One of the things to be aware of before heading to a game at Oracle Park is that it gets cool at night in San Francisco. Even in the heart of the summer, San Francisco night temperatures will dip down into the mid to upper 50s.

    Due to its location, Oracle Park also gets a small breeze off the San Francisco Bay. This means you need to come prepared for cool weather during the game.

    It's a tricky balance as some of the seats are in the sun - and quite warm until the sun goes down. It then gets cool pretty quickly.

    For night games, I typically bring along a sweater and a light jacket. I also like to wear shoes with socks so I can keep my toes warm.

    Head over to the what to wear in San Francisco page to learn even more about what the weather is like during baseball season. On this page, you will also find my tips on what to wear for each season.

    Where to Enjoy Three Innings Free

    Did you know you can catch up to three innings of San Francisco baseball for free? Many visitors are not aware that the San Francisco Giants offer a small viewing area near McCovey Cove where you can see part of the game for free.

    This area is standing room only and offers a decent view for around 100 people at a time. The area is tightly monitored by San Francisco Giants staff and they turnover the area to a new group of people after the third, six, and ninth innings.

    The picture below shows what one of the three viewing area windows looks like. It also gives you quick glimpse as to what you'll be able to see of the game.

    There's usually a line to get in for almost every game. However, if you have a little extra time or just want to watch for little while, this is a fun way to see the 2014 World Champion San Francisco Giants play.

    The map below shows you where to find this area outside the stadium. You'll either see the line or San Francisco Giants staff waiting in this area.

    Tips to Get to the Park

    It's really easy to get Oracle Park from the rest of San Francisco. If you love to walk, it's only about a mile from Union Square.

    You can also take the K, T or N Muni trains from Market Street. All three drop off right in front of the stadium.

    Another option is to take a cab, Uber or Lyft. On game days, the streets right in front of the stadium are closed. Your ride won't be able to drop you off right at the stadium, but there is a designated drop off point that's just a block north of it.

    If you do get a ride, remember where they dropped you off. This is also the place where cabs will lineup again after the game.

    Where to Grab Drinks or Food Before/After the Game

    I love going to the baseball games, but also have a lot of fun grabbing a couple of drinks or food before or after the game. Here are some of my favorite places to go for food or drinks near the stadium.

    The 21st Amendment near Oracle Park in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood.The 21st Amendment

    21st Amendment: This is one of my favorites. It's a fairly large bar, restaurant and brewery (for San Francisco standards). It also attracts a number of local San Francisco Giants fans. While you're here, make sure you try the Watermelon Wheat Beer - it's the perfect summer drink. 563 2nd Street

    Momo's: This restaurant and bar is right across the street from Oracle Park. They cater to the San Francisco Giants crowd with a huge outdoor area and drink specials on game days. 760 2nd Street

    >> Find additional great options around China Basin

    Food at the Stadium

    There are also a a few restaurants and bars right at Oracle Park. The Public House is one of the most popular and is on the north west corner of the stadium. You can only access it from the outside. They have great food and drink specials on game days.

    Once inside the stadium, there's also a number of great places to eat. Two of my favorites is the Slice House by Tony Gemignani (three locations inside the park) and Sheboygan Bratwurst (you will find a few locations on the Field and Club levels). 

    Another favorite is Gilroy Garlic Fries. Here you can get some of the most amazing garlic fries in the stadium. They offer 10 locations inside Oracle Park.

    If it's a cold night, another great place to stop is Pier 44 Chowder House. It's behind center field and here you can get the famous clam chowder in a Boudin Bakery sourdough bread bowl.

    2022 Fan Fest

    Before the season even starts, the San Francisco Giants throw a big celebration and festival at Oracle Park. It's a time for the fans to meet some of the players, get their autographs, and pick up gear for this year's season.

    You can also grab a bite to eat, get your picture taken with the three World Series trophies, visit the Giants Highlight Theater to watch last season's highlights, and play catch on the field. Single game tickets will also be on sale.

    The 2022 Fan Fest date is TBD. It lasts from 10am to 3pm.

    SF Hotels

    While there aren't many hotels near Oracle Park, Union Square and Downtown SF are just a quick walk or ride away. Here are quite a few recommendations based on price, neighborhood and amenities.

    Brief San Francisco Giants History

    The Giants moved to San Francisco from New York for the start of the 1958 season. For years, the team played at Candlestick Park on the southern end of San Francisco. In 1999, they moved to their current home at Oracle Park.

    World Series

    One of the most memorable moments in San Francisco Giants history was Game 3 of the 1989 World Series against the Oakland Athletics. A few minutes before the game started, an earthquake hit the area. The Loma Prieta Earthquake was quickly dubbed the World Series Earthquake.

    They lost that year, but went on to win the World Series in 2010, 2012, & 2014. 

    Barry Bonds Records & Controversy

    In recent years, the club has had a number of high powered players. One of the most famous - and most controversial - is Barry Bonds. During his time with the SF Giants, he became the first person to hit 73 runs in a season (2001) and he also hit 700 home runs in his career (3rd overall).

    His power allowed him to rack up the awards. However, mystery and some doubt followed him for years. Many speculated that he was using performance enhancing drugs as he bulked up quite a bit over a short period of time. 

    The controversy heated up in 2011 when Bonds was put on trail. In April of that year, Bonds was acquitted of any wrong doing and walked away a free man.

    More SF Giants History

    This is a really brief look at some SF Giants recent history. If you want to learn more, take a stroll around Oracle Park either before or after a game. 

    On the north side of the stadium, you will see the Giants Hall of Fame. Here are just a few of the plaques here.

    On the south side, near McCovey Cove, you will see a number of plaques in the cement that showcase the SF Giants Top Awards. Here are just a couple of them.
