Without a doubt, the SF Giants have one of the hottest tickets in town, and that is with a minimum of 81 games available. But to a lot of fans, attending a game is as normal as visiting a friend’s house, or going to the store.

But there are also die-hard fans out there who do not have the ability to make the games, and choose to watch the game on television or listen to it on KNBR 680.
It isn’t a bad thing to be able to watch or listen to the best announcing crew in all of baseball. Heck a lot of people listen to them while they are at the game. Whether it’s your schedule, financial situation, or distance from AT&T Park, there are many reasons why fans cannot attend. And that does not make them any less of a fan than those that do.
But the vibe at the ballpark is unique, and one must see it for themselves to really appreciate the entire picture. The hope is that every Giants fan is able to make it out to the ballgame at least once per year in order to cheer on the team with a capacity crowd. Having nearly 42,000 fans stand and cheer at the same time is an amazing feeling, and one that can’t be duplicated elsewhere.
To stand in unison as the National Anthem is being sung, and again at the seventh inning stretch, it is an honor to be a part of a fraternity of fans who either grew up near the diamond, or grew to love it later in life.
All of the fans who support the team are appreciated by the team and baseball in general. And the hope is that everyone feels the connection to the game when they attend.
So with the season nearly upon us, the question is: How many games do you plan attending in the 2016 season?
