San Francisco is one of America's most progressive, and most geographically beautiful urban areas. Home of the Golden Gate Bridge and their own unique brand of cable car that serves as both public transportation and a tourist attraction, the "City by the Bay" is also the home to baseball's San Francisco Giants.
San Francisco Giants tickets are understandably in constantly high demand. The franchise technically got its start in the New York borough of Manhattan over a century ago in the Polo Grounds, but the team as its known today began in San Francisco in 1958. The extensive history of the team since then has been well-documented. There is plenty of folklore to go around about baseball icon Willie Mays, also known as the "Say Hey Kid". There is one particular bit of footage where he catches a long fly ball in the outfield while he's running away with his back facing towards the infield. Memories like that are etched in the minds of Giants fans, and is one of the main reasons that San Francisco Giants tickets are sought after.
Willie Mays was a universally beloved figure in the sports world, but the Giants also served as the team for one of the most controversial figures in recent sports history. Barry Bonds, who holds a plethora of gaudy baseball records, played the majority of his career in a San Francisco Giants uniform. Bonds holds the record for most home runs in a single season as well as most career home runs. Perhaps most impressive of all are his seven awards for Most Valuable Player, considering the second most MVP's anyone has ever gotten is three. Despite all of his impressive feats, Bonds' reputation will always be mired with controversy due to the steroid scandal which he was a central part of.
In spite of fans' mixed reactions to Bonds' tenure as a baseball star, there's no doubt that many San Francisco Giants tickets were sold because of him. Even to this day, some of the tickets being sold can likely be attributed to the attention Bonds brought to this team. It should be known, however, that Giants tickets are a great value for any baseball fan in the Bay Area these days, and will be for some time. The city's AT&T Park, which hosts the Giants, provides a great family atmosphere that everyone can enjoy.
