This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll write a quick blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, when I return home, I’ll provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and perhaps even love. On Wednesday night I visited San Jose, California, the fourth stop on my sprawling 10-team California-Nevada-Idaho-Washington road trip.

Opponent: Stockton Ports, 7:00 p.m.
Municipal Stadium, from the outside:
Municipal Stadium, from within:
Ballpark Character: Paul, beloved churros vendor
At Random: One of many pieces of concourse art, which combine to make Municipal Stadium one of the most unique and aesthetically pleasing ballparks I have ever been to. The door below used to house a phone booth, hence the Clark Kent/Superman theme.
Your groundbreaking and subversive ballpark joke of the day, San Jose Giants https://t.co/hHWQ7OnTtY
