4-16-13-Stockton Ports vs. San Jose Giants

Municipal Stadium in San Jose is truly one of my favorite places to watch a game. Muni was built as part of a WPA project in 1942. It holds 4,200 and is the home of Class A (high) San Jose Giants which is a San Francisco Giants farm team. Many of the 2010 and 2012 World Series Champion Giants played in San Jose as they were beginning their careers:

Love how they post the lineup of both teams right when you walk in

One of the great things about Muni is the food. Turkey Mike's BBQ down the third base line is to die for:

Oh there was a game going on:

The classic battle: Pitcher vs. batter

Muni is a great place to watch a game and to watch future majors before they are famous
