Once upon a time I was what you might call a frequent visitor to the ol' ballyard. That was back in the day before the Giants shared it with the 'Niners. I remember the adventures fielders had with fly balls, particularly before the outfield end was closed in. Night games were awful. I can't begin to relate how cold it got. Day games were okay... until about 3pm. Then it was as bad as a night game.
Ironically, the 'Niners games don't suffer the same climate conditions the Giants did because of the time of year. I've attended any number of football games, even in December and it has been shirtsleeve weather. I'm not sure that was ever the case when they played at Kezar Stadium.
Back to the Stick- about the funniest thing I ever saw involved Willie McCovey. A pop-foul was hit to the right side and McCovey gave chase. Foul territory was huge so there was lots of room. As Stretch circled under the ball, a fan down in front of us began crying, "He's gonna drop it, he's gonna drop it, ...gonna drop it." Sure enough, he dropped it.
Today, they call being a Giants fan torture. I'm fairly certain it has been that way ever since they came west.
