Doubleheader - Nightcap in San Francisco

This time, it was riding the Muni streetcar to AT&T Park, to attend my second game of the day. I arrived there, having only bought a ticket for 1 game online, and hoped to buy for the other games at the ballpark.
After picking up my ticket, I had to go to the advanced window inside the ballpark. So I went in right away, without getting to see the exterior of the stadium. I figure I would have time to do that in the other days. I went to my section, which was on the 3rd level, to see what the view was like, and to decide if I'll buy tickets for the same area, since these were one of the cheapest. As it turned out, they were great, so I went to the advance window and bought tickets for the other 2 games in the same section.
I walked around the stadium in the concourse area.
And as seen on TV, I passed by the giant Coke bottle and mitt in left field. Nearby is a small replica of AT&T Park, where kids could play some ball. More about these features and more in the review here.
I went up to my seat, which had a view of the field and the bay, plus I saw boats passing by. The fog would roll in later on, and it was interesting to see.
The San Francisco Giants took on the Chicago Cubs. The Giants needed to win to keep their playoff hopes alive. Same with the Cubs, but they would need so many things to go their way for that to happen.
This was an interesting day, going to 2 games in 2 ballparks. The experiences turned out to be opposite, as my time at the A's game was sunny and hot, and the crowds was small, while the Giants game was foggy and cold, and more people at the game. The Giants' ballpark had a lot more to see than the A's. Overall, I had fun at both places.
