San Francisco Giants’ home now called Oracle Park after AT&T split

An Oracle transaction.

Buster Posey, Brandon Crawford and their mates henceforth will play ball at Oracle Park.

The Giants on Thursday will announce a 20-year agreement with the Redwood City technology company to affix its name to their waterfront ballpark in San Francisco.

Terms of the deal are not being disclosed, but in an interview Wednesday, Giants President and CEO Larry Baer termed it “very much in line with other recent naming-rights deals for top-tier facilities.”

That would make it worth $300 million to $350 million, a significant increase over the roughly $100 million the Giants received over 22 years in the original naming-rights and marketing deal that they signed with an AT&T predecessor in 1996.

Transaction Oracle Park would be better.

It's China Basin. Both before and after whatever happened with the phone company.

Seems like the only bad thing about the Giants' home park is the parade of corporate monikers that have been bolted onto it.
