It’s no April Fool’s joke. MLB baseball is back on April 1st. NL West and AL West fans can rejoice after a tough, challenging year.

The San Francisco Giants face the Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park on April 1st at 7:10 pm PST. The Giants and Mariners will play a three-game series with game two on April 2nd at 7:10 pm PST and April 3rd at 6:10 pm PST.

VISA cardholders can use their cards to purchase limited 2021 Giants single April home game tickets before the general public starting on April 2nd at 10 am PST.

According to SB Nation’s McCovey Chronicles, San Francisco will have about 8,000 fans at their home opener when they host the Colorado Rockies on April 9th at 1:35 pm PST. Hopefully, San Francisco will do it in the safest possible way.

The Giants honored fan and paramedic Bryan Stow. Ten years ago, Stow suffered a brutal attack that nearly took his life at a Giants at Dodgers game at Dodger Stadium. Stow never fully recovered, but he made it through a near-death experience and has since made it his mission to end bullying and fan violence.

As of March 27th, San Francisco assigned four players to their minor league camp, and a result, reduced their spring training roster from 31 to 27. Four non-roster invitees were reassigned: Trevor Gott, Dominic Leone, Zach Littell, and Nick Tropeano, all of whom are right-handed pitchers.
