Think Candlestick Park is gone forever? Think again

In September 2015, San Francisco lost one of its iconic symbols—its sports cathedral, Candlestick Park, where the 49ers of the 80’s dominated football, winning 5 super bowls in 14 seasons under Joe Montana and Steve Young.

 

And, although the Giants never won a world series there, they played 40 seasons at the Stick, until they moved to AT&T Park in 2000.

The stadium is completely gone now, but parts of it still remain, all over the Bay Area, and even the country—in people’s homes. KALW’s Shereen Adel goes on a hunt for some of the lost artifacts of Candlestick Park: the stadium’s seats.
