On Thursday morning, Giants stadium staffers took to the front plaza of the ballpark to hang up a new banner: “ORACLE PARK: Home to the San Francisco Giants.”
News agencies were onsite and tweeters watched from afar, trying to work out their mixed feelings about the change.
While some are adjusting to the name change, many are dismissing or cringing about the new moniker.
“Are we not considered one of the best stadiums in the league?” wrote one tweeter. “Can we please get something nicer that stands out in the history books like Fenway Park or Yankee Stadium does? #OraclePark”
Others are suggesting people just return to referring to the park as Pac Bell Park, its name from 2000 to 2003.
“IMO Oracle park is better than att park,” wrote another tweeter, “but if you insist on calling it by a past name, pac bell park is an astronomically better option.”
