Not that anyone in California would be allowed by law to pollute the environment with such a behemoth of a vehicle, but one garage near AT&T Park in San Francisco was charging "Full Size" SUVs and trucks $130 to park for Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night. Hummers get no breaks, you know? But, if you drive a "compact SUV" or a "Minivan," it'll cost you only a cool hundred. It's 90 bucks for a car the size of a Prius or a '69 Dodge Dart. No word on what it'd cost to stunt park your Bullitt Mustang.

A few readers have pointed out that, because the games start at 5 p.m. San Francisco time, many of the garages still are busy with the cars of working commuters. That will reduce the number of available spaces. Plus, the garage owners probably figure that if World Series tickets cost more than lesser playoff tickets or, surely, regular-season tickets, then why not up-charge to park?

So if it's this much to leave your car somewhere for a few hours, how much will it cost to park yourself at the game inside the stadium? Well, Game 2 tickets on StubHub start at $495 for standing-room only. ... ooh, they're gone. OK, how about $515 for high up in the upper tank? You might as well rent a kayak and paddle to McCovey Cove.

Or, fans could just walk down to Willie Mays Plaza and just soak up the atmosphere for free. As long as they don't have to pay to park their car first.
