Tomorrow is the Giants’ annual Fanfest event at AT&T Park, also known as the day I go back to the ballpark for the first time since October and see all of the players and eat my first hot dog of the year and start to feel really, really excited about the upcoming season. I think this will be the fifth Fanfest I’ve attended, and even though they seem to get more and more crowded every year, I still enjoy the event. There’s just something really nice about being back at the ballpark again, even if the field is all ripped up and covered with mud from the motocross event last weekend. It’s a nice way to kick off the season, or I suppose kick off the anticipation for the new season.
I dug up some of the photos I took at last year’s Fanfest, where despite a questionable forecast, we were blessed with a break in the clouds and blue skies. The forecast for tomorrow includes periods of rain. I’m hoping we get lucky again. Rain or shine, I’m looking forward to being at the ballpark again. Chances are very, very good that no matter what the weather is like, I’ll have some photos to share when I get back.
(And okay, this post also gave me an excuse to try out my new blog’s lightbox and gallery features. I love new toys.)
