San Francisco Weather at AT&T Park

Or learn how you should dress for today’s Giants game at AT&T Park, San Francisco. AT&T Park (aka Pac Bell Park and SBC Park) is a classic urban ballpark with an old-time feel inspired by Wrigley Field and Fenway Park. This $357 million picturesque, open-air ballpark is conveniently located to almost all public transit system servicing the San Francisco Bay area. You can watch the game for free from the waterfront promenade just beyond the right-field fence. |
Built by the San Francisco Bay, the park's right field line is a short 309 feet, fully 30 feet shorter than the left field corner. A Willy Mays high wall (24 feet) in right field helps to balance the short porch. The arches and odd angles in the right field wall cause many bad bounces earning it the nickname “Triples Alley.”
As an open-air park by the Bay, the park is subject to unpredictable winds. Normally, the summer days favour hitters and the damp nights help the pitchers.
As a hitter’s ballpark, ESPN ranks AT&T Park #22. In 2010, AT&T Park surrendered a total of 7.72 runs per game for both teams (5th lowest in MLB). Coors Field surrendered the most runs (10.59).
