AT&T Park

Today the AT&T Park is one of the most famous sports fields in San Francisco. The MLB's San Francisco Giants call them their home. The baseball park has only been around since 2000, first under the name Pacific Bell Park, which is responsible for the infamous cola bottle slide in the park and later renamed SBC Park for a while. It landed on its current title AT&T Park in 2006. It's in the South Beach neighborhood, right on the beautiful bay; That's why it is said to be the origin of the baseball term "splash hit" after home runs fell into the water just outside the park.

Candlestick Park

Candlestick Park was originally built for the newly relocated New York Giants. As part of the contract for the Major League Baseball team's coastal movement, a new stadium was to be built for them, and Candlestick Park opened in 1960. The San Francisco 49ers also called this during eight NFC championship games. Several shots and close-ups have also been taken in the history of candlestick. The 1962 thriller "Experiment in Terror", scenes for the film "Contagion" and "The Fan" are among the recordings in the park. Another fun fact: The Beatles gave their last concert in Candlestick Park on August 29, 1966. The stadium was closed on August 14, 2014.

Kezar Stadium

This historic stadium is where the 49ers once played and is now a public stadium and playing field. Today it is the home of the San Francisco Delta football team. This outdoor stadium is right in the southeast corner of Golden Gate Park. Although the Kezar Stadium track and field only opened in 1990, the site has been around since the early 1920s. The NFL 49ers named the stadium San Francisco for the first time in 1946 and stayed there for two decades.
