About Last Night: San Jose Giants, August 4, 2016

This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll write a quick blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, when I return home, I’ll provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and perhaps even love. On Wednesday night I visited San Jose, California, the fourth stop on my sprawling 10-team California-Nevada-Idaho-Washington road trip.

At Random: One of many pieces of concourse art, which combine to make Municipal Stadium one of the most unique and aesthetically pleasing ballparks I have ever been to. The door below used to house a phone booth, hence the Clark Kent/Superman theme.
