Baseball may or may not be America’s Pastime, as it was known for a couple of generations. But spending an evening at San Jose’s circa-1942 Municipal Stadium watching the San Jose Giants is still a pretty good way to pass the time.
Compared to every other team in the minor leagues—from Single-, to Double-, to Triple-A—no club had a better record through the first half of the season than the Giants’ 50-19. Jumping out to a 12-and-a-half-game lead to win the first-half crown, which guaranteed the Giants an eighth-straight spot in the postseason, San Jose was the most represented club at June’s All-Star festivities in Modesto.
But the festivities took a toll. The Giants went on to lose six in a row to start the second half of the season. Since that time, San Jose was able to get Modesto out of its system to win six straight entering a four-game series in Visalia that started Tuesday.
The Giants will return home to host San Bernardino’s Inland Empire 66ers on Saturday (6pm), Sunday (5pm) and Monday (7pm).
As always, tickets to Saturday’s and Sunday’s games can be had for the old-fashioned price of $10, but for more stingy fans, passes to Monday’s contest are being handed out for free at local State Farm branches. It might be worth taking the time to look into some life insurance policies as well, because Turkey Mike’s barbecued ribs and chicken—a staple at Muni—is likely to inspire some overeating.
Being so close to the Saratoga Mountain Winery, its easy to book a room at the DoubleTree by Hilton San Jose Airport Hotel and make your way over the one of these fabulous concerts! Check out all the great performers coming up and grab a ticket before they’re all sold out!
