October 29, 1998
Well, the 1998 baseball season is officially over but for most of us baseball is still on our minds. For us Giants fans this off season is the beginning of some major changes for our team. With every acquistions we make, every player we re-sign and every minor leaguer we think about giving a chance we are thinking about the year 2000... PAC BELL PARK. Like most Giants fans I am excited about our new stadium and the team we will field in 2000, but I am also saddened by the thought of the farewell to Candlestick Park.
I for one LOVE The 'Stick!
I just wonder if I am the only one out there that feels that way...
