Look out, kids! We’ve gotten word that, starting Friday, the SFPD is focusing their laser sights on the pressing issue of “underage alcohol possession, consumption, and intoxication in and around AT&T Park during baseball games.”

What can too-happy teens expect? More cops inside and outside the park, all watching for signs on underage drinking and public intoxication. Local youth should also brace themselves for a barrage of joint SFPD/Giants fliers “regarding the laws about underage drinking and the consequences of violating those laws” which will be distributed at and near the Park, on Muni routes in the area, and in nearby schools.

    It’s not just SFPD enforcing this, but it looks like AT&T Park security folks will go wild with their “no unsealed bottle” policy, and this also means banning all coffee cups, sodas your purchased at McDonalds.

    It’s just another way of forcing baseball game goers to buy their beverages and coffee in the park.
