49ERS GROUND FALCONS IN FIRST CONTEST AT 3COM PARK
Published September 11, 1995
The name of Candlestick Park was officially changed to 3Com Park this weekend in a move that sees the company become the first high-tech company to sponsor a pro sports stadium in the U.S. Among expected changes: the addition of information kiosks to allow sports fans free access to the Internet, and a transformed press box that will use the latest "Internet access, multimedia and networking technologies." Sports writers will have on-line access to, among other things, media guides, game notes, players bios, and statistics (3Com Park). WHAT THEY'RE SAYING BY THE BAY: John Crumpacker writes: "There should be a grandfather clause to prevent such a thing from happening" (S.F. EXAMINER, 9/9). SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS Exec Sports Editor David Topps notes that his paper will continue to "use the name readers use" -- Candlestick Park (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 9/10).
