These seats View Reserve, Section 314, Row 2, Seats 10 & 11.
The seats are:
o Behind home plate and a little to the right.
o Directly over the top of the tunnel
o In the middle of the row. No one ever walks in front of you
o Offer a great unrestricted view of the ballpark and the bay beyond.
o Protected from the wind
You can hear the flags whipping in the wind at the top of the ballpark, but if it weren't for the noise from the flags, you wouldn't know it was windy (well except for seeing the flags in other parts of the ballpark).
For day games, you'll be in the shade starting about the 5th or 6th inning.
Row 1 goes from Seats 1-8, then that row disappears and Row 2 becomes the first row of the section for Seats 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13, before Row 1 starts again (see picture for a better view) This means no one ever walks in front of you
My partners and I feel these are some of the best seats in the house.
Our group has had these seats since the ballpark opened in 2000.
Here's how we work:
(1) We use an average ticket price for the 81-game season, so everyone pays $53.40 per game - (that works out to $26.70 per seat).
(2) Anyone can have the 2 exhibition games - just ask. There's no charge for those games.
(3) Each partner has their payment share due to me before the Giants installment plan due date. There are 2 more dates - February 7 and March 7, so your first payment would be due when you sign up, and then your next 2 payments would be before the payment dates are due.
(4) We use a modified draft.
> People send me a list (via email, excel spreadsheet, etc) with their 1st, 2nd and 3rd round picks.
> If there are games they really want - such as some of the giveaways, Strike Out Cancer, etc, they let me know those dates as well.
> I plug all that into an excel spreadsheet and there's never really been too many conflicting dates
> If there are conflicts, I balance it out to try to make sure everyone gets as many of their 1st round picks as possible
(5) For Post Season, we've either gone to games with other partners (that worked better when most of us were single) or we use a random number generator for post-season order.
(6) Special offers from the Giants are passed along to the group. If we get asked to participate in any of the opening day ceremonies, such as unfurling the flag (I've done it twice and 2 of the other partners have done is several times as well), I RSVP first (since they go fast) and then let the group know to see who can go. This also includes post season play games and additional tickets as well.
We have up to 35 games for sale - it's up to 35 since one of our partners is willing to take less if someone wants more. We'd prefer to sell a minimum of 10 games per new season ticket partner, but if you can take more, then that won't be a problem. If you want all 35 games, then that's great!
I've had these seats since the ballpark opened and have had I've only had 2 partners drop out since then (both moved out of the area) and everyone feels the system we're using is more than fair. One person has been a season ticket partner since the first year the ballpark opened.
