SPRING GAME . . . Stanford will wrap up its spring football practice season with its annual Cardinal and White game on Saturday at historic Kezar Stadium in San Francisco. Gates open at 1 p.m. with the kickoff set for 2 p.m. Admission is free, though donations to benefit San Francisco Recreation and Parks Youth Scholarship Program will be accepted at various locations inside the stadium. Festivities begin at 1 p.m. with activity booths such as face painting and football toss, as well as a pregame autograph session with Stanford football alumni at 1:30 p.m. and a postgame autograph session with the current team. Concessions will be provided by Gordon Biersch Restaurant and Brewery and a limited edition 2010 Stanford spring game T-shirt will also be available for purchase.Music will be provided by Live105FM and the Washington High School band of San Francisco. Moving the game to Kezar Stadium, located on Stanyan Street in the southeast corner of Golden Gate Park, was necessitated because the playing surface at Stanford Stadium is being reseeded along with the program's desire to broaden its Bay Area fan base. Parking is available for $10 at the Waller Street lot, located on the northeast side of Kezar Stadium, on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 12:30 p.m. Public parking is also available at the Millberry Union Garage, located at 500 Parnassus Avenue near the UCSF Medical Center, two blocks away from Kezar Stadium. Limited street parking is also available. Fans are also encouraged to utilize public transportation, including San Francisco MUNI, BART, Caltrain and Golden Gate Ferry service. Kezar Stadium is conveniently accessible from the N-Judah train and the 6, 7, 71 and 43 MUNI bus lines. From the Peninsula, take Caltrain northbound to the final San Francisco stop at the King/4th Street and Townsend Street Station and then transfer to the N-Judah MUNI toward La Playa/Ocean Beach and exit at the Carl and Stanyan Street stop.
