Over at Around the Foghorn, I wrote a little piece on tips to getting good ticket deals to SF Giants games. Here’s a snippet and a link to the rest.
Rule #2: If you can swing it, go to a mid-week game, day game if possible. It will save you time and money. It’s also not nearly as crowded and makes for a pleasant day.
Rule #3: Sold out never really means sold out (almost never). Stubhub always has tickets. Most of the time, they are sold by season ticket holders and unless its a premium game, are usually reasonably priced. Could you have saved money by planning a bit in advance? Probably, but usually not enough for it to make much difference.
