49ERS GROUND FALCONS IN FIRST CONTEST AT 3COM PARK

     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).
