San Jose, CA- The San Jose Giants announced today all festivities surrounding the 2017 FanFest. On April 4, as part of the #DiamondSeason Celebration, FanFest will be capped off with an exciting exhibition game between two interorganizational clubs, the San Jose Giants and the Sacramento River Cats, the Triple-A Affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. This marks the first time FanFest ends in a scrimmage, and is the perfect way to mark the 30th Anniversary of affiliation with San Francisco. The evening will provide fans with a look at emerging stars in San Jose and former Giants now on the doorstep of the big leagues. This will be a unique evening that is sure to provide many special memories.
In addition to the exhibition, fans will have the opportunity to meet and receive autographs from members of our Giants, beginning at 4:00 PM. New San Jose Giants Manager Nestor Rojas will also give a brief welcome to kick off the festivities. San Jose Giants season ticket holders and members of the media will be invited to attend a press conference beginning at 2:00 PM, featuring members of the San Francisco Giants front office, San Jose Giants front office staff and select San Jose Giants players and coaches.
The day will not only offer a preview of the new team on field, but also a first look at some of the improvements at Municipal Stadium, including a state-of-the-art video board, new seats behind home plate and new concession items at the booths. As part of the exhibition pregame ceremonies, the San Jose Giants and Operation: Care and Comfort will debut the 2017 Military Trading Card Set.
"We are thrilled to welcome back our fans to Municipal Stadium for FanFest 2017 and for another exciting season of San Jose Giants baseball," said Mark Wilson, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager. "The exhibition game is set to showcase talented prospects throughout the organization on the journey to becoming stars in San Francisco. I encourage everyone to come meet our team and support our Giants during what promises to be another incredible FanFest."
