Giants enlist fans in Designated Driver Challenge
SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants will take their competition with the in-state-rival Dodgers and Padres off the field with a Designated Driver Challenge to deter drinking and driving from the three clubs' respective ballparks.

During each team's home games this season, fans can earn a "run" for their team by pledging to be a designated driver at special booths located throughout the three ballparks.

To qualify, fans must be over the age of 21, have a valid driver's license, promise not to consume alcohol at the game and pledge to ensure a safe ride home from the game for others.

"We're proud to see Giants fans embracing the use of designated drivers," Giants senior vice president of ballpark operations Jorge Costa said in a news release. "We want our fans to have an enjoyable experience at the park, but most importantly, we want them to return home safely after every game."

The competition is sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, and if the Giants win the Budweiser Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge, Anheuser-Busch will donate $1,000 to the Giants Community Fund.

The Giants host the Dodgers at AT&T Park in a three-game series starting on Friday.
