Cruise/Baseball in CA questions

The baseball schedule is out fo next year and when I looked at the dates that work around our cruise we are in LA and San Fran when there are games. We really want to go to a game in each city (we are huge baseball fans!) but aren't sure about travelling to the ballpark. We usually go to the games in Anaheim when we are at DL and that is so easy!

What is the easiest way to go to a game in LA if we don't have a car? I assume we will stay somewhere in LA the night before the cruise so any suggestions for the best hotel?

For the game in SF, what is the best way to get to the ballpark from the port and about how long do you think it takes?

Grand events should not go unnoticed
That's the Disney master plan!
For a carnivore, it was very good indeed

You're going to be at the Cruise Ship Terminal at Pier 35 (or is it 33)? It looks to me like your best bet is the streetcar down the Embarcadero, but you're going to have to transfer. Take the 'F' line toward the Ferry Building, and transfer at Embarcadero station. From there, both the 'N' and the 'T' lines go directly to AT&T Park. Go south, toward Caltrain/King St/Sunnydale, and get off at King and 2nd St.

Muni's web site has a page specifically for transporation to the games. See

They also have maps of the lines. See

Have fun!

Yeah, I was going to say that too. Probably a very good option for getting from the cruise ship terminal to the park. Quick, and since it's only about two miles straight down the Embarcadero, probably reasonably priced.

But when the game lets out? Fuggetaboutit.

Thanks Bob! We are used to taking transit so that sounds pretty straight forward.
