MLB: Cincinnati Reds at San Francisco Giants Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Hello and happy Thursday.

In under a month, the San Francisco Giants will open the doors to Oracle Park. Fully. The team announced on Wednesday that, starting June 25, there will no longer be restrictions on capacity at the ballpark. Up until that date, the Giants will continue with the approach they’re currently using, which is greatly reduced capacity, with social distancing, tickets sold only in pairs, and a section for fully vaccinated fans.

But on June 25, when the Giants host the Oakland Athletics for the resumption of a standard matchup that people keep trying to sell as a rivalry for profit thrilling rivalry, things will return to normal. Season ticket holders — who have used new seats to facilitate social distancing — will return to their normal spot in the yard. Single seat tickets will be made available, and every seat in the park can be used.

This is all in accordance with the state announcing that sports venues can return to full capacity on June 15.

It’s amazing how quickly things can change. It wasn’t until a few weeks before the April 9 home opener that the Giants found out they could have any fans in the park, and now they’re gearing up for full capacity.
