Welcome to Candlestick Park in San Francisco on Thursday, Septemeber 21, 1989. This is a view of the lower box seats behind home plate at a SF Giants vs LA Dodgers game.  The Giants won the game 4-3 with Kelly Downs getting the win and Ramon Martinez taking the loss.

See the banner on the upper right – “Giants Vision”.  I remember there was a “Giants Vision” cable channel broadcasting SF Giants games.

This was a memorable year as the SF Giants played the Oakland A’s in the World Series and Game 3 was interrupted at 5:04pm on October 17, 1989, because of the Loma Prieta 6.9 Magnitude Earthquake. That was a very scary and tragic afternoon as 63 people died because of the earthquake.
