Perhaps one of the things the City by the Bay is known best for is baseball. Between the A’s and the Giants, the bay area is never void of America’s favorite past time between the months of April and October. UC Berkeley students often take advantage of this. Whether you love the sport of baseball itself (as I do) or just like to spend an evening under the lights of the field with friends, a baseball game is a great and affordable way to get out of the Berkeley routine.
Last night I attended the UC Berkeley Greek community’s “Giant’s Night.” About 200 fraternity men and sorority women piled into charter buses and set off for AT&T Park to watch the Dodgers take on the Giants. As a San Diego native, I was of course born and raised as a Padres fan, making whom to root for last night a bit of a “lesser of two evils” situation. But it was a good game, a warm evening, and I was honestly too distracted by talking with all of my friends to pay much attention to the score anyway. So much of the Berkeley community was in one place at one time that I got to catch up with friends from al different groups whom I had met through all different avenues.
