I loved Fuji Photo Day at Candlestick Park on Saturday, May 14, 1988. Fans were allowed on the field before the game to take pictures of the players and the ballpark. I loved walking on the pristine and immaculate grass. I wish I could have preserved a piece of the field to bring home. Fuji Photo Day was one of my top favorite events at the Stick besides Opening Day and the Post Season games.
Fans were able to get on the field 2 hours before the game. I wish AT&T Park would have a similar event now. I would roam around and go crazy shooting photographs.
I do not remember who the gentleman is in this photograph. I really like his SF Giants shirt. I am not sure if he was an usher.
The SF Giants player in the background is Joe Price. He played for SF Giants from 1987 to 1989 as a left handed pitcher. The SF Giants defeated the New York Mets 3-2 with Mike Krukow getting the win and Ron Darling taking the loss.
Just wondering if any other SF Giants fans who visited Candlestick Park also have good memories of the Fuji Photo Day events? Please share any memories from this event too. From my interaction on social media, I have heard how fans really treasure the fun moments at Candlestick Park.
