SAN FRANCISCO -- As you're watching tonight's Home Run Derby, don't think that McCovey Cove is some huge body of water behind the right-field bleachers. It's really a shockingly small little inlet when you see it in person, separated by only a walkway from the back of the bleachers. There are dozens of colored rafts out there getting into position.
Since AT&T Park opened in 2000, there have been 57 home runs hit into the Cove -- none by a right-handed batter. Giants hitters have been responsible for 43 of the shots, with 34 by Barry Bonds.
