Pics: Ports vs. Giants

You know, between the moderate isolation from most of my friends and family and the severe heat, I wonder why I moved here. Then I realized last night that I am within driving distance of a bunch of ballparks: Oakland, San Francisco, Stockton (A-Oakland), Sacramento (AAA-Oakland), Modesto (A-Colorado) and San Jose (A-San Francisco).

One of those, Banner Island Ballpark in Stockton, is on my way home from work, so I decided to catch a game. There’s a lot of photos after the jump. Here’s the complete gallery on Flickr. Do not post these elsewhere without my permission.

The Ports won, 4-3. Anthony Capra (1-0, 4.09) earned the win while Oliver Odle (7-8, 5.14) took the loss.
