Oracle Park is a baseball stadium located in the SoMa district of San Francisco, California. It has been the home stadium of the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball (MLB) since 2000 and has a capacity of 41,915 for baseball games. The stadium has breath-taking views and a classic design, and hosts a variety of events throughout the year.

Construction of Oracle Park began on December 11th, 1997 and the stadium opened on April 11th, 2000. It was previously named Pacific Bell Park (2000-2003), SBC Park (2004-2005), and AT&T Park (2006-2018) before its current name was purchased by the Oracle Corporation in 2019.

The section of the San Francisco Bay beyond Oracle Park’s right field wall (China Basin) is unofficially known as McCovey Cove, in honour of former Giants player Willie McCovey who played 22 years in the major leagues between 1959 and 1980, all but three of which were spent with the San Francisco Giants.

San Francisco Giants sell their tickets via and the MLB Ballpark App.

SeatGeek has replaced StubHub as the official ticket resale partner for MLB.

Baseball fans can still use other resale ticket marketplaces to buy and sell tickets to MLB games. MLB will verify those tickets so buyers know they’re getting a legitimate ticket.

Here are links to the main ticket resale sites. Click on the link, which will open up a new window, and you can compare the prices on the different ticket resell sites, bearing in mind that the prices shown are before the selling platforms fees are added, so take time to have a read of my tips to Buying Tickets in North America.

I recommend downloading the Ballpark App to your phone as it contains a lot of Gameday information for the Ballpark you are visiting and a place to check in and record all the baseball games you have been to.
