History: Candlestick Park is the former home of the San Francisco Giants, who now play in AT&T Park. The Giants played at Candlestick Park until 1999. AT&T Park opened for the 2000 season. Candlestick Park is situated close to the bay and was known for its windy conditions. The ballpark was built with radiant floor heating under the concrete in the lower box seating area that was not able to keep up with the cold and windy conditions of the location because the pipes were installed too deep into the concrete. The ballpark is best known for withstanding an earthquake in the 1989 World Series. The park is set to be demolished in early 2014.
