The Giants Balldude/Balldudette Program was created more than 25 years ago as a unique way to involve fans in the on-field action. During each home game, the team designates two people to don Giants uniforms and field foul balls to hand to children in the crowd. As the first MLB team to use adults in this role, the program began as the "Senior Involvement Program" but now includes a broad range of folks, ages 21 and older.

The Giants Balldude/Balldudette Cutouts have been discontinued for the remainder of the 2021 season. Thank you to all who supported this program during an unusual year. Please check back again next year for an opportunity to become a Balldude or Balldudette in the 2022 season!
