Parley with the Giants: San Francisco Team to Host “Cursed Child” Night

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been making a splash in the Bay Area since its December 1, 2019, premiere. But there’s another San Francisco, California, institution that also enjoys making a splash in the bay – with home-run balls.

The San Francisco Giants organization recently announced it will host a Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Night on April 28 at Oracle Park, and hold on to your Sorting Hats: Special-event ticket holders will receive custom Hogwarts House-themed Giants T-shirts!

People all over the Internet have created their own mash-up shirt designs featuring Harry Potter themes and their favorite Major League Baseball team logos, but this is the first time we’ve seen a team release an official Potter-themed shirt. As you can see, they’re a total home run, with the Giants logo and Cursed Child-style House crest on the front and what else for the number on the back but 9 3/4?
