Vehicles are not permitted on the sidewalk so as to not run over pedestrians!!!
onions dispenser
Coke bottle
My personal onion tour of ballparks. I think they are real, but I deduct points for the goofy dispenser. Fun slide or shameless advertising? You decide - love the glove, though. No one has hit one in to it, yet.

Willie McCovey area from the park.
Pitching matchup. Again - is it SBC or AT&T Park?
Cable Car
Street sign
When the Giants hit a home run - they ring the cable car bell... and that's it..... D- for home run celebration.
Where am I? Looks like Cooperstown, NY is a scant 2,886 miles away.

Yogi Berra quotes
2 ladies with hats with buttons on them
Gotta love that Yogi! "I knew I was going to take the wrong train, so I left early."
Giants super fans... even their soda is orange!!

Mets lineup on board.
The mascot (Lou Seal - ugh...) is telling Pedro Feliz, "No fraternizing with the enemy!!!"
Mets lineup
Giants lineup
Giants lineup. No Bonds. Must be the reason there was no one waiting in the cove!
Play ball!!
Barry Bonds coming to plate
Picture of Barry Swinging
Bottom of the 9th, 1 on 1st - Giants down by 2 and Barry Bonds coming in to Pinch Hit against lefty Billy Wagner.
Here comes the pitch.....
Picture of field
Bonds 710
.... and there it goes... Barry hit a home run to tie the game- check out the 3rd baseman (hands on knees, head bowed).
Changing of the sign
Bonds 711
The Mets got 2 in the top of the 10th and won the game 9-7, but we had to leave after the 9th was over to get the rental car to go to Yosemite.... I HATE leaving games early!!! I missed some free baseball! BUT the good news was the Mets DID win.
