Giants Announce Plans for Frank Sinatra Tribute Night on August 13th
The Giants will pay a tribute to “Ol’ Blue Eyes” - one of the world’s most beloved entertainers, Frank Sinatra, on Monday, August 13, when they face the Washington Nationals at 7:15 p.m. Members of the Sinatra family will participate in a pre-game ceremony, the ceremonial first pitch, National Anthem and the 7th Inning Stretch.
Fans who purchase a special Frank Sinatra Tribute Night ticket will receive a seat in the Frank Sinatra designated section at AT&T Park and a limited edition Frank Sinatra bobble head. Additionally, there will be a commemorative Frank Sinatra/Giants-themed poster, depicting a well-known scene with an added Giants feel, given to the first 20,000 fans (possible age limit to apply). Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.sfgiants.com/specialevents or by calling 415-972-2298.
A diehard baseball fan and a personal friend of Willie Mays, Sinatra was a frequent guest of the San Francisco Giants at Candlestick Park.
All fans attending the game will be treated to pre-game entertainment, along with in game activities themed around Sinatra and his legendary music. A special interactive social media campaign will allow fans to vote for their favorite Sinatra songs. These songs will be incorporated into the evening’s festivities.
“We are pleased to celebrate and honor the legacy of the great Frank Sinatra, an American icon, whose music transcends generations,” said Larry Baer, Giants president and chief executive officer.

“Dad was a lifelong baseball fan dating back to his boyhood in Hoboken, New Jersey,” said Tina Sinatra. “He was certain to pass on his love of the game to us, and attending season after season with Dad became a lasting tradition in the Sinatra family, and still is. Many thanks to the San Francisco Giants for this special tribute…it would mean so much to him.”
