Black and white photograph of San Francisco Giants Owner Bob Lurie (left) talking to San Francisco Giants Manager Frank Robinson on the field in an empty Candlestick Park. We see a side view of Lurie who is wearing a light colored suit jacket and dark collared shirt. Robinson is in uniform with home whites (white pants), a Giants jacket, and a Giants cap with the "SF" logo. He is facing us with his hands in his jacket pockets and is looking at Lurie. There are cropping registration marks in the margins in red, blue and black ink.

Frank RobinsonFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Robinson (5/30/2007) Frank Robinson (born August 31, 1935 in Beaumont, Texas), is a Hall of Fame former Major League Baseball player. He was an outfielder, most notably with the Cincinnati Reds and the Baltimore Orioles. During a 21-season career, he became the first player to win League MVP honors in both the National and American Leagues, won the Triple crown, was a member of two teams that won the World Series (the 1966 and 1970 Baltimore Orioles), and amassed the fourth-most career home runs at the time of his retirement (he is currently sixth).During the last two years of his playing career, he served as the first permanent African-American manager in Major League history, managing the Cleveland Indians to a 186-189 record. He went on to manage the San Francisco Giants, the Baltimore Orioles, the Montreal Expos and the Washington Nationals.

Monster ParkFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (6/8/2007) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candlestick_parkMonster Park (colloquially Candlestick, after its original name of Candlestick Park, and sometimes just simply The Stick) is an outdoor sports and entertainment stadium located in San Francisco, California. It is the present home field of the San Francisco 49ers NFL team, who moved over from Kezar Stadium in Golden Gate Park before the 1971 season.Monster Park's East FacadeGround was broken in 1958 as the new home of the National League's San Francisco Giants, who were moving west from New York. The Giants officially chose the name of Candlestick Park after a name-the-park contest on March 3, 1959. Prior to that, its construction site had been shown on maps as the generic Bay View Stadium. Richard Nixon threw out the first ever baseball on the opening day of Candlestick Park on April 12, 1960. The Oakland Raiders played their 1961 American Football League season at the stadium. In 1971, the NFL's San Francisco 49ers became tenants as well.
