Hello and happy Wednesday.

The San Francisco Giants start a new season tomorrow, but there’s still more than a week until they return home to Oracle Park.

And when they do, there will be fans waiting for them.

We’ve known for a while that the Giants were likely to have fans at the park for their home opener, but now we know how many. According to team president and CEO Larry Baer, the team will welcome roughly 8,000 fans through the gates when the Giants host the Colorado Rockies on April 9.

Fans at Oracle Park! It’s been a while.

Here’s hoping it’s done in the safest possible way for everyone involved.

How many days until Opening Day?

There is 1 day until Opening Day. That’s almost the smallest possible number.

Have a great Wednesday, one and all.
