GIANTS CLOSE TO UNVEILING NEW STADIUM PROPOSAL
Published December 20, 1995
According to a KNBR-AM report cited on "SportsCenter" and the S.F. EXAMINER, the Giants will unveil a new stadium proposal Thursday. S.F. Board Supervisor Carole Migden said the team intends to pursue a ballot measure in March to construct a stadium in the China Basin area, "which would be entirely privately financed." The Giants, who saw voters reject ballot measures in '87 and '89 for publicly-backed stadiums, must convince at least four supervisors to submit the proposal for the ballot by December 27. S.F. Mayor-elect Willie Brown said he would support a privately financed downtown stadium, and state Sen. Quentin Kopp, a past opponent of previous plans, said, "It looks feasible, and it looks desirable and in the public interest" (Gordon, Brazil & Walsh, S.F. EXAMINER, 12/19). Noting the KNBR report, ESPN's Karl Ravech said the Giants "went the way of the Mariners -- keep the big-name players and hopefully get a new stadium" ("SportCenter," 12/19).
