SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants wrap up an eventful 2006 regular season with a six-game homestand against the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Dodgers from Monday, Sept. 25, through Sunday, Oct. 1. San Francisco swept Arizona in the desert last month and will look for similar results next week when Brandon Webb and the Diamondbacks come to AT&T Park for a three-game set starting Monday. The Giants will then host Jeff Kent, Nomar Garciaparra and the rest of the rival Los Angeles Dodgers for a regular season-ending three-game set opening Friday, Sept. 29.

The homestand is sure to get off to a spirited start on Monday, Sept. 25 with College Night II. Students from all over Northern California can purchase their tickets at

Also on Wednesday, fans can join Felipe Alou, Juan Marichal, Ozzie Virgil and the Giants Community Fund for the San Francisco premiere of the film "Republic of Baseball: The Dominican Giants of the American Game."
