1959年3月3日,旧金山巨头棒球队的新家被正式命名,烛台公园。 名称被选中在比赛中,以命名新建的体育场。 Al Dermody(1910-2004),比赛获胜者没有必要望着很远,因为全国联盟的Windswept和Chilly Contines在旧金山湾的烛台点距离烛台点仅为几百英尺。 1995年,烛台公园的古老名称被改为3Comm公园,经过一个相对较小的电脑软件开发商为体育场名称的权利竞标了50万美元 – 击败了苹果计算机,IBM等巨人。
原文:1959 Mar 3, The new home of the San Francisco Giants baseball team was officially named, Candlestick Park. The name was chosen in a contest to name the newly-built stadium. Al Dermody (1910-2004), the contest winner didn”t have to look far, as the windswept and chilly confines of the National League”s least favorite stadium are located just a few hundred feet from Candlestick Point, on San Francisco Bay. In 1995, the venerable name, Candlestick Park was changed to 3COMM Park, after a relatively small area computer software developer bid a half-million dollars for the rights to the stadium name – beating out such giants as Apple Computer, IBM and others.
