          Here's two more I found.




          And, wow... it's called Monster Park now? I had no idea, I guess since the Jets haven't played there recently so I haven't watched any games that have taken place there within the past few years. Gotta love corporate sponsors.

                For "live" shots of Candlestick Park see the film "Experiment in Terror", which was released in 1962. It has been on TCM in the past year and may be available on video.

                      It will go back to Candlestick Park: voters in San Francisco passed a measure in 2004 requiring the name to go back to Candlestick once the current naming rights deal expires in 2008. One of the few times naming rights will be prevented from continuing.

                        Here are a couple more shots, both from Corbis:



                        Taken in July 1960.



                        Taken April 12, 1960. The inagural game at the 'Stick.

                          More on the movie, which is available on DVD:

                          http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055972/

                          The credits at IMDB don't mention him but John Roseboro is in it too. The game footage is from the 1961 season.

                          It's possible that they filmed part of a "Donna Reed Show" episode in Candlestick Park. Episode 6-31, "My Son the Catcher" (April 16, 1964) and Episode 7-3 "Play Ball" (October 1, 1964) both featured Mays and Don Drysdale. Leo Durocher appeared in "Play Ball." However, the episode list at IMDB is not complete so there might be other possibilities.

                            Now that I'm home I've been able to find a few more shots (once again from Corbis.ca):


                            Another shot from opening day 1960.


                            Opening day again.


                            In the background, the park appears to be under construction.


                            The park as it was in 1989. Compare this to the older shots.
