6. The Birds (sight)

Never leave your food unguarded after the seventh inning. The team of seagulls circling the outfield bleachers are season ticket holders, who flock to the nearest food source.

Although the gulls resemble a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s famous classic, The Birds, these birds aren’t flying killers. Besides the obvious threat of pee and poop, the flying swarm is no cause for concern.

Rule of thumb, the score of the game determines the intensity of the flock. A close game will keep the gulls out of the park, but all bets are off in the result of an uneven score.

7. Organic Garden (sight and smell)
San Francisco is known for being one of the most progressive cities in America. Locals are proud to flaunt their healthy lifestyles and wide variety of organic market options.

It should come as no surprise to discover an organic garden growing in straight away center.

According to Eater SF, “the 4,320-square foot patch located just under the scoreboard behind the center field wall will provide the Bon Appetite Management Company concessions at the park with freshly-grown avocados, berries, tomatoes and, of course, kale.”

The San Francisco Giants are the second franchise to feature a live garden in a major league ballpark following the San Diego Padres. The Giants’ edible garden made it’s debut in June of 2014.
