San Jose Soccer Stadium
WELCOMING PARTY: In San Jose, Ann Killion reported Saturday's Fire-Earthquakes game, the Earthquakes' first home game since the city's former team moved to Houston in '05, drew 20,038 fans at McAfee Coliseum. The crowd, many of whom were "paying their allegiance" to Fire MF Cuauhtemoc Blanco, was larger than any crowd for the three Indians-A's games held at the stadium the previous weekend. But Killion noted the "cavernous Coliseum is not a great place for a soccer game, with the fans too far from the action" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 4/13).
