The San Francisco Giants have one of the best marketing teams in Major League Baseball, especially when it comes to stadium giveaways.

Many times during the Summer you’ll see ballpark entrance lines wrapped miles around San Francisco street corners as fans wait their turn to secure prized giveaways like replica World Series rings, World Series trophies, skateboards and more.

Not shockingly, the Giants have done it again – this time thanks in part to Metallica.

For the second time in as many seasons, the Giants will be hosting a Metallica night and being given away to fans who purchase the special tickets will be an inflatable Metallica inspired guitar along with real-life guitar picks featuring caricatures of band members and Giants players.

While the Giants have yet to officially unveil the guitar look, it’s believed to look similar to one used by members of the band.

As they did last season, Metallica is expected to perform the National Anthem to the presumed sold out crowd.
