Day 5 in AZ.......


Drove 2 hours south to Tucson and Hi Corbett Field

Rained on the way, and before the game started, but got really warm by the time the gamne ended

Weird little park. No outfield seating, and very high stands on the infield. Lots of aluminum ( like CF bleachers at SBC), glad we werent here on a really hot day.

Most of the big guys for the Giants werent even there, as they probably have gone back to SF to get ready for the season.

Our seats were behind a large screen, so not many pics... as the screen made the pics look weird

Pics up in a few....

Very Noisy
And sun into hitters eyes
Bad design, but park is about 70 years old...
They had a wall of fame with players that have played there. Includes Willie Mays.

Tucson is MUCH different that Phoenix.

Tucson is a city, but much smaller and has poorer feel than Phoenix.

Re: Day 5 in AZ.......


they haven't had a real team for a long time. that's why they have the field that they do.

Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.
