Both games will be played in San Francisco, but Buck will have little to no margin for error logistically. The football game is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET and the baseball game for 8:15. Candlestick Park, where the 49ers play, is in the southeastern corner of the city and AT&T Park, where the Giants play, is in the northeastern part of the city.

Buck plans to arrive by cable car at AT&T Park after calling the football Giants' game.
