The Stanford Baseball Experience
"There aren't many settings better than Stanford's Sunken Diamond, and that includes the whole country."
- Bruce Jenkins, San Francisco Chronicle
Attending a Stanford Cardinal Baseball game allows you to return to the days of yesteryear, when you could sit "up close and personal", hear the chatter on the field, smell the freshly cut grass, and the wonderful aroma of popcorn wafting throughout the ballpark. Here at Stanford, we understand what made baseball our National Pastime - it's the game, and the pure game of baseball is what we offer. At Stanford's famous Sunken Diamond, you won't find an advertisement sign anywhere in the ballpark, that's not our style. The Stanford Baseball experience still offers our fans free parking, a beautiful lawn area for picnicking, giveaways and special events, and easy access to autographs, but these all take a back seat to the game itself. Again, what we offer is the game of baseball - pure baseball.
Season Tickets, What A Great Idea! - Our season ticket plans are simple, and offer an option for any budget or schedule. And because our seating is based on a first-come, first-served basis, you'll have the opportunity to see the game from different perspectives and make new friends every time. Special discounts are offered for seniors 65 or better and for Stanford faculty / staff members for Full and Pick'em Plans.
Full Season Plan - Our Full Season Plan includes tickets for each home game on the schedule. This year we also offer a preferred parking area (one parking pass per 4 season tickets), a souvenir collector's lapel pin, and exclusive season ticket holder HOTLINE for any assistance you may need.
14-Game You Pick'em Plan - Stanford Baseball offers a unique 14-game You Pick'em Plan, allowing you to choose 14 games that fit your own personal schedule. A great price for your own customized season ticket plan!
Family Fun-For-Five Plan - Returning for another season is the extremely popular Family Fun-For-Five Plan. This is by far the most affordable season ticket plan in the Bay Area. This plan consists of five tickets per game, all for less than $1 per ticket. Pack a lunch, get ready to relax on the lawn area, and head over to Sunken Diamond for a fantastic day at the ballpark. Seating restrictions apply.
Groups of 10 or more - Your company, Little League or Bobby Sox team, school, or church will enjoy Stanford Baseball together at great prices. Every group receives a public address announcement during the game. Group Leaders (that's you) with 25 or more tickets will receive a Stanford Baseball T-Shirt as a token of our appreciation for all of your efforts. To reserve your group outing, please call (650) 723-8472.
Let's Tailgate - Stanford's campus can't be beat for its beauty and natural setting. A special area adjacent to Sunken Diamond has been reserved for tailgating groups on a first-come, first-served basis. Entertain clients, employees, family, or friends and have a pre-game tailgate party right next to the ballpark. Reservations available for groups of 25 or more. You may cater the event yourself, or we can suggest a few of our favorite caterers. For more information, please call (650) 723-8472.
It's A Perfect Day For A Picnic - You can't miss our happy picnickers sitting at the tables above the third base side of Sunken Diamond. You can now reserve these much sought after picnic tables for only $20 per table (tickets not included). For more information, please call (650) 723-8149.
Baseball Served with Style: The Diamond Suite - This private suite and outdoor patio overlooking the field is the perfect place for entertaining clients, holding business meetings, or rewarding employees with their special day at the ballpark. The Diamond Suite is furnished with a 35" color television with a satellite feed, VCR, wet bar, sliding glass doors, wall-to-wall carpeting, and couches. To highlight your experience, you'll get to choose someone from your group to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Of course, we'll have to supply this person with their very own Stanford Baseball cap and an authentic Pac-Ten baseball to get the job done right! This package includes up to 100 tickets and costs only $500. There's only one Diamond Suite, so don't delay and call (650) 723-8149 to reserve your day in style.
