What Items Can’t You Bring into the San Francisco Giants Ballpark?
Fans coming to Oracle Park should review the list of prohibited items from mlb.com before coming to the venue. You don’t want to bring something you can’t bring inside to the game due to the team’s policy. Here are some of the most common prohibited items to be aware of when coming to the San Francisco Bay venue for a baseball game.
- Any bag that is larger than 16″ x 16″ x 8″
- Aerosol cans
- Backpacks (including clear backpacks)
- Beach Balls
What Should You Do If Your Bag Is Too Big to Enter the Giants Venue?
If you bring a backpack (or bag too large to enter the stadium), you have two options on where to leave them before entering the venue for a game. First, you can bring your bag and items to your car and leave them there. Leaving them in your vehicle is the best, cheapest, and safest option to secure your belongings properly.
However, if you took public transportation to the game and can’t leave your bag in a car, your next best option is to go to a nearby hotel and see if they will hold onto it. Most hotels charge a small fee to hold onto the belongings of people while they are at a game in their storage closest. However, these hotels have limited space to do just that, so it might become a first-come and first-served basis.
