GIANTS OFFICIALS TAKE NOTES AT COORS FIELD
Published May 12, 1995
A task force of executives and politicians were in Denver this week to examine Coors Field and "get a glimpse of the future," according to Bruce Jenkins of the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE. The Giants' executive in charge of ballpark planning, Larry Baer, was joined by Owner Peter Magowan, Jim Wundermann of Mayor Frank Jordan's staff, Sydney Unobskey of the city planning department, and Joe Spear of HOK among others. HOK designed Camden Yards in Baltimore and Jacobs Field in Cleveland. The officials were impressed by the way the stadium revitalized the "dormant, run-down" northwest end of downtown Denver. Baer: "The way we see it, the Mission Bay-China Basin area is just waiting for a shot in the arm like this" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 5/12).
