About San Francisco Giants and AT&T Park
The San Francisco Giants of the National League is one of the oldest franchises in Major League Baseball. Boasting a 125-year history, the team moved to San Francisco from New York in 1958 playing a total of
42 years in Seals Stadium and Candlestick Park before moving into their current home at AT&T Park in 2000.
Since opening its gates in 2000, AT&T Park has become internationally-renowned as a premier venue in the world of both sports and entertainment. On the diamond, more than 28 million spectators have witnessed a trio of playoff appearances, the 2002 World Series and a bevy of magical moments. Barry Bonds established his own historical stage on the shores of McCovey Cove, from his record-setting 71st home run in 2001 to the all-time home run record
(762 HRs) in 2007. Likewise, the euphoria that surrounded the Giants'
pennant clinching win in 2002 is forever etched upon the San Francisco sports landscape. The ballpark was the center of the baseball universe when it hosted the 78th Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July
10, 2007. In 2008, the Giants celebrated the team's 50th year in San
Francisco. AT&T Park has also played host to some of music's biggest acts, including the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band and Green Day.
Off the field, the Giants have one of the premier community outreach programs in professional sports, becoming the first team to implement a 100 percent participation program, involving every player, coach and uniformed staff member in at least one community project throughout the season. Through its community outreach programs, the Giants work with corporate and non-profit partners to raise awareness, educate and generate interest in a variety of issues important to both their fans and community.
