Yup. It happened while Erik and I were visiting the ballpark on that warm Tuesday night a week ago. What could cause such a thing?
The answer is a Giants Home Run.
Catcher Buster Posey of the hometown Giants had just launched a three-run home run into the deepest part of the park.
Whenever the Giants score a home run at AT&T Park - two official demonstrations happen. A large foghorn located above center-field begins to sound. And four massive water cannon located within the right-field archway columns discharge simultaneously. Here is what the resultant shower looks like outside the park along the waterfront promenade.
That bicycler at left was wearing the Giants colors and it looked to me like he had intentionally driven along here just to get soaked. It was still really warm - so why not?
