GIANTS OFFICIALS TAKE NOTES AT COORS FIELD

     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).
