#2 Best Ballpark in America!
"Not only for the beauty and design of the ballpark, and how it was built with all the modern convieniences along with a hint of the past with its brick exterior and its manual scoreboards. But also the truly unique features, such as the short porch to McCovey Cove, the right field wall where pedestrians can watch the game "for free," the way the seats all turn toward home plate, and the closeness you feel to your team due to the limited amount of foul ground surrounding the field.
Not to mention the fact that it is set in the heart of the most beautiful city in America. Granted, there has not been nearly as much history in this park as in Yankee Stadium, but if we're talking about the best place to go and watch a game, Pac Bell's got my vote."
