Where Are You Watching Game 1 of the 2012 World Series?

World Series kicks off Wednesday at AT&T Park. We have all the info on schedules and tickets, and we want to hear how you think the series will go.

The question is not if but where you are watching Game 1 of the World Series pitting the San Francisco Giants against the Detroit Tigers.

The first pitch ever for these two teams to meet for the title is set for at 5:07 p.m. at AT&T Park.

  • Are you heading to a sports bar?
  • Prefer the comfort of your own home (and the choice of Kruk and Kuip on the radio over Fox's team of Joe Buck and Tim McCarver)?
  • Or are you big time and heading to AT&T Park?

Local places you might want to watch the game include BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse

The Giants stormed into 2012 World Series Monday night by scorching the St. Louis Cardinals 9-0 behind the undaunted pitching of Matt Cain and the mind-boggling hitting performance by Marco Scutaro. The Tigers, boasting Cy Young and American League MVP candidates in Justin Verlander and Miguel Cabrera, respectively, are an even more daunting foe. 

Let us know in the Comments below where you are watching the game and why! And see below for a full World Series schedule.

Go Tigers! (that's for my fellow 'Ganders in Cupertino)

At home in the comfort of my family room in front of the HDTV. Better views, better brews, smaller crowd, instant replays, slo-mo replays (I love that 3k frames per sec camera on batters and pitchers), no lines for food and snacks, no lines for restrooms, no lines to get into or out, can get an adult beverage after the 7th innings if I like. And, I can get on Patch immediately following game. That should be a big plus, right Anne?

Bob M, you can even get on Patch DURING the game to see if I'm taunting you again!

And isn't that super-slo-mo absolutely amazing?! I loved the shots of the Giants players with the rain falling around them in slo-mo!

A point of interest about the slo-mo camera. MLB players use wooden bats. Most use ash but some use maple or hickory. When you see the ball hitting the bat, the bats that flex or vibrate (think Pence's much replayed double) are usually ash while the maple and hickory bats have little or no flex. It is a personal preference as to the material. Some like the extra distance (in general 10-20 feet on a ball to the warning track) you get from maple or hickory but it also stings the hands and forearms more than the flexible ash. So, flex = ash, no flex = maple or hickory.
