It was Saturday night in downtown San Diego, and J Street near the Petco Park baseball stadium was bustling.

Fans of the hometown Padres, many decked out in team gear, packed the bars and restaurants with more waiting in line and happy to do so after a year of pandemic lockdown.

At 1-all, World Series moves to quirky Giants park – Houston Chronicle

“SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Eric Hosmer is eager to see what makes San Francisco’s waterfront ballpark unique.

“I know absolutely nothing,” the Kansas City first baseman said. “I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, the atmosphere and the energy the crowd brings. I’ve always wanted to play there.”

“I’m sure going for the first time for a World Series game, it should be fun,” he said.

Well, wait until he trips over a bullpen mound chasing a foul ball. Or a teammate loses a fly in the mist that wafts above shallow center. Or those swirling winds turn a routine popup into an all-out scramble.

Who knows? Might even get a crazy carom off that odd-shaped brick facade on the right-field wall, resulting in the first Series inside-the-park home run since 1929.”
