Every year the San Francisco Giants host a FanFest event to give fans a chance to purchase season and single game tickets, take self-guided tours of the ballpark and get a close-up view of their favorite Giants players.  This was my first FanFest and I decided to go after my photo field trip to Treasure Island was cancelled.  Admission is free and even though it was raining off and on today, a ton of fans showed up.

My goal was to get a few baseballs signed by players and decided to get in a very long line.  After about an hour and a half of waiting I was told that based on the pace of the line, it was likely that I and those behind me were most likely not going to be able to get an autograph by closing time (3:00 PM).

So even though the only autograph I saw today was my own on a receipt for baseballs - I still had a fun time seeing the Giants locker room and dugout up close.  I grabbed a few photos that can be seen on flickr.
