After 40 chilly years at Candlestick Point, the Giants moved to their spectacular new park on the shore of the San Francisco Bay, sparking sellout crowds and a championship season. Splash Hit! celebrates the beauty and excitement of this major league jewel from the players, the fans, and those behind the scenes. More than 125 images by an array of award-winning photographers capture the action from the air, in the clubhouse, and on and off the field. A narrative by Joan Walsh and an introduction on the park's conception and construction by C. W. Nevius, and short personal essays by ESPN's Chris Berman, Sports Illustrated's Ron Fimrite, the San Francisco Chronicle's Joan Ryan, and others, make Splash Hit! the perfect tribute to this unique park and the team that calls it home.
