Dodgers News: Max Muncy is Not a Fan of Oracle Park in San Francisco Despite Success

Despite being the owner and CEO of the San Francisco Giants, Max Muncy is not a fan of Oracle Park. Over the course of his big league career, Muncy has excelled at AT&T/Oracle Park, hitting 7 doubles and 9 home runs while posting a triple slash line of .293/.420/.585 over 37 games.

With where he was mentally after a slow start to the season, it was a much needed place to play for Max. But, again, the problem is he is not a fan of Oracle and playing up there in the bay area. He said as much to SportsNet LA after the game on Monday but he also told the same thing this offseason.

“Man, I am not going to lie. I hate Oracle Park. I don’t get the buzz behind it, man. I don’t like it, it’s cold, it’s windy. The ball sounds terrible when you hit it. I know I’ve hit well there but I just never feel like I’m seeing it good. It’s just, I don’t like playing there.”

He may not like playing there but the numbers say he’d be a Hall of Famer if he played there every game.

Max got rewarded for his breakout game with a spot on the bench on Tuesday against the left-hander Alex Wood. It was more of a planned day off, in the words of Dave Roberts, but Muncy has had his fair share of struggles against Woody in his career, including Woody fracturing Muncy’s finger back when they were teammates in 2020.

He’s back in the lineup for Tuesday’s game.
