New! Check out our comprehensive
Guide to the Seating Sections at AT&T Park!
How many rows behind home plate are the seats?
We’re in Row R of section 115, and in the center of the section behind home plate, which puts us 17 rows back in the Field Club. The Lexus Batter’s Box also has 3 sunken-area rows in front of Field Club.
How are seats numbered at AT&T Park and what numbers are aisle seats?
We’ve now created a separate page to cover seat numbers and section layouts.
What is Ticket Relay and how does it work?
Ticket Relay is a system run by the Giants that electronically transfers your tickets from us to you, so that you can pick them up at computer kiosks or the Will Call windows at AT&T Park the day of the game (or earlier). Our prior buyers have told us they absolutely love this service. You can read more about it on the Giants’ website.
Scalpers and anyone selling paper tickets can cheat you by selling the seat electronically before they sell you the fancy season-ticket-holder ticket, which makes that fancy paper ticket worthless. Using the Giants’ own Ticket Relay system guarantees that you have a valid seat at the ballpark, since it’s inside the San Francisco Giants’ computers and is the official record of who owns the seat.
Where is the special Field Club Entrance?
It’s in Willie Mays Plaza (corner of 3rd and King), between the Luxury Suite entrance and the Main Gate.
Unlike the massive Main Gate, the Field Club Entrance is a regular glass double-door that matches the Luxury Suite entrance, and has the “Field Club” sign above it.
Is there handicapped or disabled access to these seats?
The best answer is that it depends on what kind of access you need. We have a family member with a disabled placard who is able to manage two short sets of stairs inside the park to get to our seats. Off the top of my head I’d guess that the top one is about 6 steps and the bottom is about 12 steps, with a large landing between them where you can take a break in between.
The Field Club Lobby is at street level so all other aspects of the ballpark experience require no stairs. An elevator gives wheelchair access to the tunnels and promenades on all levels of the ballpark.
The Giants have a wide range of wheelchair-accessible seats at AT&T Park, many with standard baseball seats adjacent to wheelchair spots so families can watch the game together and talk as easily as in any other seat. This is yet another piece of great design that went into the park.
The Giants Ticket Office is exceptional in their customer service, and I’d recommend you call them directly if you have special access needs. They’ll be able to guide you to different locations at different prices where you’ll have a great time, and (based on our experiences) they’ll be pleasant and helpful in doing so.
I’ve been to other ballparks where the ticket offices are not so friendly, but I’ll just stop here and spare you the stories!
Can I walk around the entire ballpark if I have a Field Club ticket?
At AT&T Park a Field Club ticket is almost a universal pass: it gets you everywhere except the luxury suites and the dugout level boxes.
The 360-degree walk around the stadium is popular and many people do it before or during games. Just follow the main concourse, and the ushers will gladly give you directions on how to find your way out of the secure perimeters of the Field Club and into the general areas of the park.
Just make sure to keep your ticket with you, since they do check every guest at every entrance to Field Club and they’re strict about showing your ticket when you come back.
What’s the difference between Field Club and Premium Lower Box?
We occasionally see deceptive ads for seats in “Premium Lower Box” where the sellers are implying that these are the best available seats in the ballpark.
Premium Lower Box are actually the seats BEHIND the Field Club area and farther down the lines! They don’t have access to the private dining areas and the clubhouse-to-field ramps used by the players.
You can read more about this and other seating areas in our Guide to Seating at AT&T Park.
What’s the difference between Field Club and Club Level?
Field Club are the seats closest to the field and centered on home plate in the seating chart. Club Level are seats anywhere on the second deck of the stadium. Field Club has a separate, dedicated entrance gate, while Club Level ticketholders use the main gate.
You can read more about this and other seating areas in our Guide to Seating at AT&T Park.
Are food concessions located close to your seats?
There are two answers to this:
1. In-Seat Service. In Field Club we have the choice of having the food come to us! You fill out a menu card, the server comes over, enters your order into the computer and charges your credit card, and then another server brings your food. For us it’s usually taken from 15-35 minutes for food to arrive. You can get hot dogs, burgers, fries and sausages, salads and wraps, beer and wine. The menus change occasionally for day vs. night games etc. and there are more choices on the menu during Dodgers and other big series, even though virtually all home games are sellouts. There is a surcharge for the service.
2. The Field Club Lobby. We also have our private food stands, which are located in a gated inside (warm) lobby beneath the seats. They have a variety of ballpark and ethnic foods, even a carvery where they’ll slice the meat for your plate or sandwich right in front of you. They also have a full bar, and there are lots of TV’s around to watch what’s happening on the field. I’m one of those “never leave your seat even if it starts snowing” diehards, but I have noted that more reasonable (and perhaps more intelligent) people have been known to retire to the Field Club lobby if it starts to rain or a night game turns really cold.
Are rest rooms nearby?
To reach the Field Club lobby from our seats you go down a short staircase into a short tunnel, which connects to the main tunnel below the ballpark. We are just a few steps from where that tunnel opens into the main lobby, and rest rooms are just inside the lobby area.
Additional rest rooms are also located farther down the main tunnel in both directions.
Where in the Field Club do we go to see the players going down to the field?
To see any players who are crossing from the clubhouse to the dugout or back again, follow the directions in the paragraph above for reaching the rest rooms. When you reach the main tunnel, face towards the pitcher’s mound and turn towards left field to go to the Giants passageway, towards right field for the visiting team.
After you walk a little ways you come to where velvet ropes and Giants staff members regulate access. When players come through they block the main tunnel for a little while so the players can get through, and you’ll have the chance to see them go by.
How do you get Field Club seats at AT&T Park?
These seats are all reserved for charter season ticket holders, who bought “Personal Seat Licenses” (called PSL’s) in addition to their tickets back in 2000 when the stadium opened.
You can buy PSL’s from existing season ticket holders through the Giants, but then have to buy the tickets each season as well.
Do you have aisle seats?
Unlike some older ballparks, at AT&T Park there is no aisle directly behind the plate. Section 115 at AT&T Park is centered behind the batter’s box, with aisles on either side.
We are in the middle (not on the aisle) of that section, directly behind the batter’s box and home plate. … but I guess the name of this website makes that pretty obvious!
How cold does it get at the Giants’ night games?
First of all, let me say that compared to the old days in Candlestick Park this new stadium location is much less windy and much less cold. I’m a nostalgic guy but I don’t miss Candlestick at all for this reason, and after going there as a kid we were partial or full season ticket holders there for close to 15 years before Pac Bell Park (now AT&T) was built.
In that context, if we’ve had one of those days where the fog in San Francisco never burned off and a good breeze is blowing it can get chilly, especially in the late innings of a night game. When I go to a night game I always wear my (Giants) wool jacket with the leather sleeves and if the wind is blowing I’ll also bring a (Giants) scarf and we’ll share a (Giants) blanket.
How long does the typical baseball game last?
The average MLB game is a little less than 3 hours long.
I’ve been to a game as short as 1:25. It was at Fenway Park in the 1990’s, and I felt cheated by fate when I’d come so far and spent so much on tickets and then saw a pitching duel that ended so quickly.
Extra inning games can run to 4 hours and longer. The time just rushes past for me, despite what the clock says.
A few years ago they placed an extra minute between half innings for more TV commercials, adding 17 minutes to the length of every game. The announcers for the media companies that negotiated that change to earn more revenue then began to criticize players for making games longer!
Can I pay with cash or check instead of PayPal?
Sorry, we’ve found that only accepting Paypal works best for everyone. There’s no charge to you, and the PayPal system protects you against sellers who don’t deliver the items you buy.
Can we buy fewer than 4 tickets if 4 are available?
Sorry, we only sell our tickets in groups of 4.
In rare cases during the season if our plans change we may offer pairs or singles, and if you subscribe to the site (via the box near the top of the right hand column) you’ll get notices of these and any other changes in availability.
Do you have references from people who’ve bought your tickets in the past?
How many seats are there in a row at AT&T Park?
It varies widely based on the section. In our part of Section 115 there are 20 seats in a row, but there are more narrow sections and others that are wider elsewhere in the ballpark.
How early can we go to a game?
Unless there is some kind of special event the gates at AT&T open 2 hours before the scheduled game time. If you go in when the gates open you’ll get to see almost all of BP (batting practice).
During batting practice fans with Field Club tickets can go anywhere in the park to watch the action and try to get a foul ball or home run. Our seats are great for watching BP, but since they’re behind the batting cage no balls can come back here. The best spot for that is along the outfield railings, in both fair and foul territory.
Where is the best place to get Autographs?
First of all, sometimes players sign as they walk through the Field Club tunnels, as described above.
Every Sunday (with rare exceptions) after batting practice players, coaches and alumni will sign autographs in the bullpen areas, next to secions 104-105 and 126-127. They’ll only sign for kids 16 and younger, and you have to get a special ticket immediately after arriving in the park from the ushers in 104-105 or 126-127. Once those tickets are gone that’s it, so autograph seekers have to get there early. The gates open two hours before game time.
You can also ask players from the front rows during batting practice, but if you don’t have seats there and guests arrive to sit in those seats you’ll be asked to move on. Players’ likelihood to stop and sign varies based on the player, the game, press interviews and the age of the fan, with young kids having the best chances.
Is the list of available tickets current?
We update the list of open seats as tickets are sold. Tickets go to the first buyer whose payment we receive via Paypal.
Do you ever make deals that discount these prices?
If you want to buy at least five games at the same time we’ll offer you a discount — email us with the dates you have in mind.
We do not negotiate the prices listed on our Available Tickets Page for individual games.
We’re season ticket holders as well. Can we team up with you to sell our tickets on your website and pay you a commission?
Thanks so much for your compliments and your message. We’re not ticket brokers, just Giants fans who need to sell off our extra tickets to be able to afford our season package. If we tried helping someone else we’d be out of our league. But thanks for asking!
