The San Jose Giants were devastated by recent tragedies across our nation, including one in our backyard at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. Our hearts go out to all impacted by these terrible and senseless acts of violence.
The security and safety of fans at Excite Ballpark is our top priority. Without compromising the security protocol plan, the San Jose Giants wanted to share some details about existing and new security measures at the ballpark. Every home game, the San Jose Giants works closely with local agencies, including SJPD, SJFD and EMTs to ensure rapid response to any and all security and/or health concerns. If any of our fans have any safety or health concerns at the ballpark, all staff members have been trained to contact an officer to assist. Fans who enter through the gates of Excite Ballpark will now walk through metal detectors and a bag check; we ask that fans remove all large metal items from their pockets before the screening process to ensure everybody can enter the ballpark safely and quickly. Before entering, fans are encouraged to check our website for a full list of prohibited items and leave those items in the car; prohibited items will be confiscated at the gate. Prohibited items include (but are not limited to): food items, non-water beverages, glass bottles or cans, chairs, sticks, clubs, squirt guns, airsoft rifles, laser pointers or weapons of any kind.
In more than 30 years at Excite Ballpark, the San Jose Giants have hosted thousands of events and welcomed more than 8,000,000 people through our gates, and we are proud of our exemplary safety and customer service record.
