SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) – Once in a while, you’ll get a whiff of it, and it has nothing to do with the Giants hitting. In this Good Question: What is that smell coming from San Francisco Bay near AT&T Park?

ANSWER: According to Alison Kastama of the Public Utilities Commission, there are a variety of reasons for the smell that often wafts up near AT&T Park.
