Baseball sure is a superstitious sport, and we’re starting to wonder whether our basecrawl is having an effect on the outcomes of these games. Last night we watched the Giants lose to the Padres in 13 innings at AT&T Park, making the home teams 0-3 on our basecrawl.
But the game did have its treats. We saw a freaking triple play, and the Giants’ Omar Vizquel was honored for breaking the all-time record for games played at shortstop. To top things off, the game ended with a fireworks show.
But we weren’t done with San Francisco so quickly. Daren and Nolan strapped on life jackets, grabbed paddles and jumped in kayaks so they could spend Saturday in McCovey Cove.
Troy met a very interesting character on the shore of McCovey Cove named Joe Dirt. You can read Troy’s blog about Joe here, and don’t miss Nolan’s recap on San Francisco here. Daren has also written a new blog comparing Oakland with San Franciso and
recapping some of our good-humored trepidation when we met another group of guys hitting all 30 ballparks this summer.
See you in L.A.
