SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/AP) – Giants fans and team officials were keeping an eye on possibly rainy weather ahead of Friday’s home opener at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

For fans, the only thing that may slow them down on game day was the cost of a ticket.

“She told us $100 a seat for the highest seats in the bleachers,” said one dad who suffered sticker shock as he tried to score some tickets for a day at the ballpark with his sons. He faced the prospect of paying a premium for waiting until the last minute.

“Opening day is a high demand game but we’ve had tickets available for $50,” offered team spokeswoman Staci Slaughter.

On the flip side, the team’s dynamic pricing system means some tickets can go for as little as $8 this season.

KCBS’ Tim Ryan reports:

The Giants will take on the Pittsburgh Pirates in the home opener. Both the Giants and Pirates are 2-4 on the young season. Matt Cain will be on the mound just more than a week after signing his splashy new six-year contract worth $127.5 million.

Despite a recent case of shingles, Buster Posey will squats into that familiar catcher’s crouch for his first regular season home game since a devastating collision at the plate late last May cost him the season.
