The last Opening Day National Anthem for the SF Giants at Candlestick Park was on April 8, 1999. It rained earlier in the day but the weather cleared up nicely for the opener. This was a bittersweet moment. This was the last year the SF Giants played at Candlestick but they were going to move to a brand new scenic and state of the art ballpark at Willie Mays Plaza. AT&T Park is flourishing now and Candlestick Park has been demolished.
The Giants helped to make the day extra special by defeating the San Diego Padres, 12-4. Shawn Estes got the win and Stan Spencer took the loss.
