Boaters Play Ball at Giants New Stadium
Boaters are getting into the swing of things, including at "McCovey Cove" on the San Francisco Bay, where boaters are striking out in new directions to catch any home runs that are hit over the right field fence at the new Giants stadium. The City of San Francisco even passed a boating safety ordinance, including a 5 mph rule, to help control the action. Boaters may be in for a long anchor though. By the end of the regular season, only six "splash" balls had been hit over the fence.
