As residents of the Bay Area, Metallica are undoubtedly proud of their San Francisco Giants. Now, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers are joining forces with the 2012 World Series champions for a special Metallica Night at AT&T Park.

On Friday, May 3, the band will sing the national anthem and throw out the ceremonial first pitch. There will also be Metallica-themed entertainment throughout the game. Fans who purchase the Special Event Ticket Package will also receive a special-edition cap featuring both the Metallica and Giants logos in the team’s orange-and-black color scheme.

The Giants will be playing their arch-enemies, the Los Angeles Dodgers. Their mutual contempt extends back to the earliest days of professional baseball in America, when both teams played in New York City. This continued even though it was former Dodgers owner Walter O’Malley who, in 1958, convinced Giants owner Horace Stoneham to leave New York City and follow them to California. Perhaps the Giants feel that, by partnering with the metal legends, they will be able to conjure up the dark forces and put a hex on their fiercest rivals.

But the night is actually for a good cause. A portion of the proceeds from the night will benefit the Bill Graham Foundation, whose mission, according to its website, is to give “grants primarily in the areas of music, the arts and education, while also supporting social work, environmental protection, and spiritual and compassionate projects in our community.”
