Updates Regarding the 2020 Season

A Message to Our Fans

April 2, 2020

Dear Giants Fans,

On what would have been our 21st Opening Day at Oracle Park this Friday, we instead find ourselves united in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. These are unprecedented times and, like all of you, we're navigating this new terrain almost day by day, working to keep our colleagues and loved ones healthy and safe and figuring out ways to help those most impacted by this pandemic.

First and foremost, we urge you to follow the preventive and social distancing measures outlined by public health officials. Our hearts go out to all those now suffering from the virus and to the families who have lost loved ones.

The worst of times so often brings out the best in humanity, and the quiet acts of selflessness and heroism all around us every day continue to leave us awestruck.

We are so deeply grateful to those working on the front lines and risking their own health and safety to save others and to provide essential services. Thank you to health care workers, first responders, public health officials, sanitation workers, social services providers, farm workers, grocery workers, food banks and the restaurant community, among others. And we want to acknowledge the educators who are doing their best under very challenging circumstances to continue to engage and teach our children.

In that spirit, the Giants are working with many of our community partners, Junior Giants families and employees directly impacted by COVID-19 to provide assistance, support and guidance. For more information on these efforts, and to find resources and updates, visit our website under COVID-19 2020 Season Updates. We are working closely with Major League Baseball (MLB) and our local authorities to ensure we make the best decisions to protect public health and safety. We will continue to provide you with regular updates as information becomes available.

You'll also find on our revised sfgiants.com/FANS page a few things we hope bring a smile to your face. It's a central hub of information that includes a schedule of the classic Giants games on NBC Sports Bay Area and KNBR, puzzles/games/coloring pages for the kids, highlights of our latest content on YouTube and more.

Finally, we hope you will help us recognize what would've been our home opener tomorrow by wearing your Giants orange and joining us virtually for Opening Day at Home presented by Oracle to hear from members of the Giants Family and to watch memorable moments in Giants history. Please tune in to NBC Sports Bay Area or sfgiants.com at 1:35 p.m. for a special Giants Stream of the historic 2014 NLCS Pennant Clinching Game 5. You can also follow along on Twitter (@SFGiants) for special appearances, including a message from Giants Broadcaster Mike Krukow, the national anthem performed by former Giant Jake Peavy and line ups announced by Renel Brooks Moon. The GIANTS STREAM will also be available on all of our social channels: YouTube.com/Giants; Facebook.com/Giants; and on Twitter @SFGiants.

As it did after the 1989 earthquake, September 11th and other tragic events, baseball will be there to lift and unite our community in the aftermath of this devastating pandemic. When the time is right, we will again gather at the ballpark or around our televisions, radios, phones and other devices to welcome back baseball and cheer on the Giants.

Wishing you continued good health,

The San Francisco Giants

Giants to Establish $1 million Fund to Support Event Staff Affected by Postponement of Major League Baseball Games

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

The San Francisco Giants today announced that it has established a fund of $1 million to assist those event staff affected by the postponement of the 2020 season. In addition to the $1 million pledged by the club, the Giants will ask its ownership group and business partners to also support this effort.

“Our event staff is the heart and soul of Oracle Park,” said Giants President & CEO Larry Baer. “During these challenging times, we want to provide peace of mind and support to our event staff employees so they can focus on their family and loved ones.”

Opening of regular season to be pushed back

Monday, March 16, 2020

On Monday, Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. conducted a conference call with the 30 Clubs of Major League Baseball. Following last night’s newly updated recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) restricting events of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks, the opening of the 2020 regular season will be pushed back in accordance with that guidance.

MLB will keep fans updated on decisions regarding plans for the 2020 schedule in the days and weeks ahead. The Clubs remain committed to playing as many games as possible when the season begins. We will continue to monitor ongoing events and undertake the precautions and best practices recommended by public health experts, and urge all baseball fans to follow suit. MLB extends its best wishes to all the individuals and communities who have been impacted by the coronavirus.
