    Candlestick Park

    The Giants selected 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. It was the first modern baseball stadium, as it was the first to be built entirely of reinforced concrete.[7] Richard Nixon threw out the first baseball on the opening day of Candlestick Park on April 12, 1960 and called it the finest ballpark in the country.[8]
