SF Giants: Three reasons Oracle Park is the best in baseball
Why Oracle Park is best: Giants fans!
We may be biased, but I think it is safe to say that the Giants have some of the best fans in baseball. The team set a National League record of 530 consecutive sellouts which ended in 2017. Sure, partly that’s because of the team’s championship years, but there were some tough years in there as well. No matter what, the fans showed up and supported the home team.
The only streak longer was set by the Boston Red Sox at 794 consecutive sellouts from 2003-2013 which also spanned their championship years. That’s not too bad of company to have, especially given the historic nature of Fenway Park and all of the success that the Red Sox have had in the past 17 years or so.
And we know that every home field is going to go crazy when their team makes the playoffs, but Giants fans did not disappoint in the three championship runs of the 2010s. And who could forget famous celebrities like the late great Robin Williams getting the fans whipped up in a frenzy before playoff games?
Or Hunter Pence getting the entire stadium to do the “Yes! Yes! Yes!” chant on the last day of the 2014 season?
It certainly helps when the team is winning and when you have incredible personalities like Pence on the team, but we all know that Giants fans are going to have their team’s back when they come to play at Oracle Park.
