 Exclusive Baseball Park Tour
Get to the park early, and enjoy an insider's tour of AT&T Park. You'll be taken throughout the park by a Giants tour guide where you can listen and ask questions about the ball park.

Chalk Talk
The main event is an exclusive Chalk Talk session that features Wharton alumnus Bill Schlough, Senior Vice President and CIO of the San Francisco Giants.

In 1980, the first large-scale “Diamond Vision” video display in sports was installed at Dodger Stadium.  Fast forward 30 years and Giants fans at AT&T Park aren’t content with a 3,000 square foot hi-def video board, they want replays on their 3.5 inch iPhone screens. Technology has clearly become an integral part of the fan experience today, but it has had an equally transformative yet perhaps less apparent influence on how the game is played and the overall business of sport.  Come hear about the key technology innovations underway at AT&T Park that are changing the game on and off the field. The format will be highly interactive, with ample opportunity for Q&A . . . please bring your questions and ask away!

 Picnic-style Lunch
Immediately following the talk, we will host a picnic-style lunch after which we will adjourn to our seats to watch the SF Giants vs. the San Diego Padres game. The weather is great for baseball during this time of the year and this is a great opportunity to enjoy a game while meeting and getting to know other Wharton alumni who live in the area.

We anticipate high demand for this event and expect it to sell out quickly. If you would like to reserve a seat for you and your guest, please do so as soon as possible!

Note to families: AT&T Park is very kid-friendly with slides in the Coke Bottle and a mini-ballpark in leftfield where youngsters can play whiffle ball throughout the game.
