"Stadium was even built right. I mean this wasn't because of the stadium. Well yes and no Horace stoneham the people. When you talk about charlie harney mayor christopher how they got the deal. You know to build the stadium where it was. The first thing is. Arnie looked at the polo grounds. And which had no parking and he looked at county stadium in milwaukee which was really drawing. Well because they had a lot of parking it was crisscrossed by freeway. So he said i want the stadium to be near a freeway and i want lots of parking and in san francisco that limited where could be And so they. They came up with the location and what happened was they took him out there at around ten o'clock in the morning and it can be nice at ten o'clock in the morning The wind is not up yet The sun can be out and he got one of those days and you know the sun was coming down and everyone was sort of hurrying them away you know. Well it's time to go you know and He was guy like to get to cocktails. You know by five o'clock so he was you know he. He saw it during the middle of the day and then he left and apparently according to lore you know soon after he left the wind came in and just started blowing. Everything around chub feeney. Who was his number two guy. He showed up a couple of days later and was there with when the wind was blowing and the sun and hadn't seen that but stone decided on that first meeting. This is where the stadium wives and feeney was like. What is this the way it is all the time. And and that's that's what he ran into. And so that was the circumstances with teams generally played under to be a fly on the wall at the architect's office and the construction companies a hallways knowing that right and that on top of literally and figuratively what it was dirt and door a you know a former decaying base door dump a matter of fact the dump was one of the. Shall we say not so nice nicknames that the facility was given over the years i mean i'm sure there were some other ones that are less less harsh but it just seems like the there were people who kind of i guess it seems seems like people in charge kind of knew that this was not the most ideal location yet it had to be. Yeah i mean obviously the best location would have been where the current Eighteen i guess. At and t. Park is now where the giants play. That's a fantastic. Location does not have at all does not have the same weather conditions there at all as as candlestick point But they were not Forward thinking enough to do it at that time. Mainly as i said because the business owners association was very powerful and voted against Against doing it They certainly have the freeways they even had there was another three way. The barca daryl freeway Which existed at that time. So there was plenty of freeways to get people to that location that embarcadero freeway was destroyed. The after the nineteen eighty nine earthquake so The way you get to the current giant stadium mainly from Marin county or from the north part of san francisco is all along the for this this beautiful row. That is right along the bay so it's all very scenic. You don't get any of that with with candlestick. You don't get that sense of san francisco scenery or beauty. It's even you can see in the bay but it's a part of the bay that's very wide. The other side is is a long ways off. it almost. Looks like looking at France from england. You know it's not like Where the current giant ballpark is which is almost underneath the bay bridge. And you've got a beautiful view of the east bay hills and oakland but you don't see any of that from san francisco you're looking you're just looking at the the at a at a a large bharti body of water. Is the bridge the san mateo bridge. You can kinda see and on the other side not much fremont you know there are many big buildings or anything really that that stands out. It's not like a lot of beautiful lights or anything like that at night. You have From the current location So it was It just was. But i don't know outside of i mean you could. There are several possibilities. Could possibly you would have had to go through a lot of political hoops. They could've maybe done something of the procedo Of course that was a working army base. At that time it was still cold. War so i guess that was. That was out. You could have possibly tried to do something at treasure island which is But of course that was the naval base and so he had the same issue. I don't really know where you would have built it Maybe out of the sunset district they would or or or Would have been the political will to do it but dig up a whole bunch of golden gate parking and build it out there. You know but nobody wanted to do that so they built it why they did. Yeah but it sounds like the team and the players adjusted and tried to On their own so to speak right with all the crisies and the cold and the wind and all that kind of stuff sadly though it did not translate at least jesus at least until maybe near the end of its life with the giants into Any sustaining championship Defensible Advantages right Save for You know world series appearance in in sixty one early on. Excuse me sixty two early on and you know eighty nine in the world series right which is a significant for some other reasons too but I guess a home field advantage. I guess is obviously something that you probably want to embrace with this particular park. But i don't know it didn't really seem to sort of convey any As the year sort of went on maybe you know. I'm not sure that you tell me. Well there's question that the team had a tremendous amount of talent that was not the problem for sure They they were better in san francisco. They were better in san francisco than they had been in new york and the rivalry with the dodgers with better than it was new york It was more intense. It was more It was a more heated rivalry of teams contending for the pennant year in and year out than it had been in new york. The new york years were outside of several very memorable seasons particularly in one thousand nine hundred. Ninety one usually was the the giants kind of dominating under john. Mcgraw the dodgers kind of dominating under you know they'll dorota or maybe charlie dressing but in in the sixties and early seventies It was a very even rivalry and there were really see. There were really good teams in the national league. The national league was the superior league to the american league at that time it had embraced The african american players there was more speed There was more dynamism in the game. and there were some real dynasties so you might have a great giants team and we're talking. I mean hall of famers you can have gaylord. Perry one marschall Orlando cepeda willie mccovey. Willie mays later bobby bonds all on the same team that would seemingly translate to a championship. But you had dodger teams that had sandy. Colfax don drysdale. Tommy davis frank howard equally Powerful you had great. Cincinnati reds teams. Great saint louis cardinals teams great. Braves teams The pittsburgh pirates with roberto clemente were very powerful during that era Eventually the new york mets and the chicago cubs and the cincinnati reds became dynasty. So there was it was it was you could mirror the giants Failure to win championships with juan marschall. So-called failure to win cy. Young awards marschall was as good a pitcher as it wasn't baseball but never wanna say young award because every year Dean chance or sandy. Colfax or tom seaver or somebody had a supposedly better season so outside of sixty to somebody else always manage to have a better season what somebody else always managed to be better in. The last week of the season is really what it came down to and it was like that even before candlestick it was like that In fifty nine when they had the pennant basically one and were beaten three straight at home by the dodgers at seals stadium and Outside of sixty two It was the dodgers or somebody else or is the cardinals for some other team that came.

"Was the idea they. It was San francisco wanted to build something and they didn't they didn't want to build a downtown First of all they had the deal with the dirt and they probably weren't gonna be able to use the dirt they built it downtown and the downtown business association knicks to the idea. They said it's Would take up too much. Parking creates too much traffic and they didn't wanna stadium near there even though that's where the current Giant stadium is and it has helped business immeasurably but they were not as a far-sighted that time yeah you wanted to describe for those who are not familiar with the geography of the bay area where this section of land is is located in proximity to that of the quote unquote city a north of it as well as within the bay area region because it's almost Having driven by it multiple times from sfo airport going into the city etc. It's almost looks like it's kind of tucked away in some respects behind sort of it's a separated by little mountain range there between that and the city itself. Yeah it's it's not near anything. It's kind of near brisbane. It's near an unincorporated area. there's a freeway that's It it was a naval. It was it was a naval shipyard and so a lot of black people moved in there and so it was kind of a ghetto Do which was you know. Nobody went there Because a lot of black people moved into African-americans moved into that area to work in the shipyards during and after world war two and so that was really before that it was nothing. And as i say it was just a Before it was a shipyard i think it was just a garbage dump. So there's absolutely nothing there. There was no social life. There's no restaurants no hotels airports not far away. it is south of san francisco. San francisco's actually a small city geographically. So in that respect everything's close If you're in downtown san francisco you can drive to it Without taking a freeway and stay pretty much staying along the waterfront Without too much traffic roughly Thirty minutes drive If you've ever seen ma- The third dirty harry which was Not magnum force The third dirty harry Shows the mayor of san francisco leaving the stadium and taking that route and he actually goes past a a drawbridge which is now left the dual bridge where the giants new ballpark is. And that's where the terrorists shoot up his car and capture him But you can also get there via a freeway You get off the freeway and then it's got this weird road that is One lane a one way on game day going to the game and one one lane going the other way after the game. I have no idea how the people who live there. negotiate this because it's goes through a neighborhood so you know if it's the wrong time of day you can't go east or west depending upon whether it's before the game or after the game but of course. Those days are over the stadium. Is there any more work. Well you hinted at the the whole sort of finding of this of this area to actually build in the first place you wanna. Maybe just a touch on the controversy. I guess because there was the whole deal was like it was part of like a grand jury investigation right in later years after in the late fifties right after they had. Yeah even the the prelude to to the giants actually or amidst the giants arrival. Yeah there was. There was an investigation. It was a big deal as far as local news was concerned involved mayor george. Christopher and charlie harney the developer and I think there were some indictments handed down and there were some guilty verdicts but I don't think anyone paid a particularly steep price but you know i think the sorry. It's surrounded though because i'm guessing it seemed like harney kind of got like a no look dealer or he didn't have to bid for it or kind of like a fed to complete. Yea because he i think he had a back door deal with the mayor of san francisco Who is either A business partner or silent business partner for getting kickbacks however it works you know I don't know much. I have written about it and read about it but i remember every detail of it but yeah it was. It was a scandal at the time. That's for sure what the ground was broken in fifty eight regardless of all this it must have been a very interesting dynamic with not only the team arriving in the city embracing the fact that major league baseball was. You know finally here but then also The the the the notion that a new stadium was essentially underway yet also may be distracted by this investigation and sort of the controversy. Rather it must have been quite the buzz and gave many of the sports writers Something to to really sink their teeth into for a couple of years while getting built yeah But then when it was finally built then you know then now you have an accomplishment and you know it's funny even though the stadium A lot of people made fun of it. At the time it was looked upon as a very new very Modern stadium People rave about it richard. Nixon said it was the best stadium in baseball Other than county stadium in milwaukee It was really the only new stadium that was built at that time. Two teams in baseball. Were still playing at wrigley field. The polo grounds re Fenway park old fenway park. Old yankee stadium. You know sportsman's park in st louis places like that You know connie mack stadium in philadelphia. That were relics or went back. Almost to the turn of the century Vince scali said it looked like a spaceship But the best description I think ever came from roger and gel who is a terrific baseball writer and he covered the nineteen sixty two world series for the new yorker..

"I guess the question i would maybe start with his. Maybe you can regale our audience a little bit about your background and perhaps how the candlestick park saga story. Remembrance hit your radar enough to Commit it to a book inform. Well i was. I was born in san francisco in nineteen fifty nine I actually Although i don't remember it. Because i was a baby but i. I was at a seal stadium and candlestick was built I attended games there from a very early age with my dad who was Huge baseball fan introduced me to baseball and it was obvious that i was good at baseball from from early age. So i just gravitated to the game and i lived in marin county which is right across the bay from san francisco and that was the team at least before oakland got there. My first memory. That i i could identify with I don't know what year it was. But i was with my father and my grandfather and i remember watching the giants play. Cincinnati reds and i recall Those reds uniforms. They're actually kind of been reproduced but they were the old pin strike Without sleeps uniforms with white hats. And pete rose is probably playing second base and i think one marsh was pitching. And i just you know. Those are memories that were seared into my mind watching. Willie mae Catching a foul ball from willie mays Having my dad predict willie mccovey hitting a home. Run predicting tom. How're hitting a home. Run things like that. That i recall. So how does that then manifest itself in the pursuit of maybe the story of the stick are you would you fancy yourself as an historian by trade or was it just something from childhood and by the way that's not a that's not a surprise given our explorations over the last number of years a lot of memories especially folks who do books or even documentaries on particular teams or leagues sports or whatever it does seem to sort of coalesce a lot of time not always around sort of those formative childhood years especially of sports you know has sort of taken Taken grip of an adolescent and young adult mind. But i'm wondering if this was more a an outlet for you creatively and sort of personally or is this a professional kind of overlap or or something between perhaps well as the rider. I've always tended toward history Written a lot of books on the history of usc football. And i'd also written a book about the nineteen sixty two Baseball season which was centered largely at candlestick park and ended candlestick park with the yankees beating the giants on a line. Drive by willie. Mccovey was caught by bobby. Richardson so i've always enjoyed the history of it and then when when candlestick finally reached it's end With the forty niners leaving after the two thousand thirteen see. Actually a friend of mine suggested you should do your next book on candlestick and i had done so much. Research in the past on Writing about the giants. Writing about barry bonds and writing the history of the forty niners. That i had a lot of accumulated a lot of research. that was at my disposal in that i was well aware of the new or new knew where to find and so writing the book. was a lot of fun and it was just a matter of Coming up with Determining which stories. I had to take out because there were so many I you know you could sell. You could make an thousand page book instead of a two hundred fifty or three hundred page book but and i i wanted to give both teams Both the forty niners as well as the giants equal star billing Along with a few other events like the beatles playing at candlestick park and a few other pope all appeared their nineteen eighty seven a few other major events that were that marks the place but mostly. Obviously it's the giants and the forty niners and i. I just thought that would be something that people would Would enjoy mitzvah was well received you know as a as nostalgia. Well i got to think that that for obvious reasons. The story essentially of the building starts with the new york version of the giants right even prior to coming over because part of the great I guess relocation. I guess an iffy i grew up in the new york area. And this is obviously before my time as well but you know with brooklyn and and the and the giants leaving new york all in one fell swoop. Talk about sort of leaving a giant hole in the hearts of many Fans in the new york area but but my understanding. Is that part and parcel of the giants moving to san francisco. Was this understand understanding if not in in written form at least at least on a on a handshake basis that a stadium absolutely would be ultimately awaiting in the san francisco region To to welcome the giants correct. Yeah well it was a lot of corruption involved in it. The mayor of san francisco had a deal with a A developer named charlie harney. I believe his name was and to make to to just simplify it. A harney owned a lot of dirt kind. A lot of he had a lot of dirt but he really wants located dirt. Though right well you have to understand. This is before the nineteen eighty nine earthquake and earthquake. Knowledge and seismic knowledge was not in nineteen fifty seven what it is today for what it was even twenty years later and i know this from Personal experience because my uncle was a con was a construction man. A realtor a real estate developer and what he specialized in was landfill and a lot of san francisco is built on landfill. A lot of the Marina areas in marin county in alameda these spe and San francisco is an incl- treasure island the The naval base half of that is landfill. Landfill was used to build To build onto your boyne island to create treasure island is the other half which is an artificial island for the world's fair of i think it was nineteen thirty nine so that was the thing in those days You need you had a lot of dirt and you needed a place to put it. So hardy had all this dirt and they came up with an idea for This place out at candlestick point which was it was a naval shipyard and it was a garbage dump and they just filled up the dirt into the garbage dump. It would never be done. It can ever be done today. Because of environmental concerns and regulations but all of that was skirted and somehow or other. The stadium was built and in nineteen eighty. Nine withstood earthquake a set point or seven point one earthquake not that far away at the standard boba. Prieta so it was pretty well built. But.

You might have been there for candlestick park. Yes the stick in the southern corner there of san francisco proper the longtime home the first time home of the san francisco that really the first time that the very first a specific built for home of the san francisco baseball giants. Yes when they moved from new york of course they didn't start in candlestick park Until nineteen sixty. The giants of course moved in the late. The late fifties The construction of the park however was Begun in nineteen fifty eight and was a little a little treacherous in the beginning little sidelines with some some questionable bidding For for said Project but of course the new york baseball giants would not have moved to san francisco without the guarantee that there would be a brand new ballpark for them eventually. And that's what Began in nineteen sixty on april twelfth. I ever game played by the san francisco giants in that new park known as the stick or candlestick park of course It became well known for football as well certainly in the nineteen eighties for sure. The san francisco forty niners after A number of years at old stadium in san francisco proper In the golden gate park there Made it their home and of course Brought with them Nfl desires in terms of filling out the stadium and encasing it Sort of all the way around and artificial turf which they brought along in the nineteen seventies earlier on that that experiment was luckily disbanded In the latter part of the decade. But there's probably no more memorable event That candlestick park was famous for or maybe infamous for them. What you just heard in that That set up clip of course That was the very dramatic and that was literally what occurred. That's what you heard and saw on. Abc television on A fateful evening late afternoon on. October seventeenth nineteen eighty nine. A seven point one on the richter scale known as now loma prieta earthquake. That struck san francisco just as the third game of that year's world series between the oakland a.'s. And the home standing san francisco giants was getting ready to get underway. Jim palmer was kind of going over some of the The game highlights from the first two games setting up the tone for what was going to be gained three and al michaels the Play by play announcer and host for both the for that For that game and you heard what happened literally that earthquake just Decimating The region at breaking up the game Of course it was continued ten days later in the as one The final two games of that series to sweep the san francisco giants. But make no mistake. That was a very memorable moment. And very scary moments and of course tragic regionally of course in the bay area happen at candlestick park. And we're gonna get into all those kinds of events. Lots of interesting stories around the giants. The forty niners. A little bit of oakland raiders in there The san francisco golden gate gales of the united soccer association makes it appearance and Some very interesting Outside of sports events And much much more with our guest. This week steve travers as we talk about candlestick park the book that he has written Came out a couple of years back called remembering the stick candlestick park from nineteen sixty to two thousand thirteen. And let's put it this way Candlestick park was a memorable for lots of different reasons. Some of them fun and and positive and championship for sure. But certainly some some less than a wonderful memories to Windy yeah we certainly that Foggy you on on more than one occasion for sure Cold oh boy. It certainly had its reputation for being cold And and all kinds of other sort of little idiosyncrasy. Shall we say for this park. I think Depending on your perspective depending on the team that you're rooting for depending on the time you already for the team in the san francisco bay area that inhabited candlestick park. Either loving cherished memories Maybe a few forgetful ones or ones that you wanna forget and tragic In some respects as well all of those and more is our conversation this week as we get into the You know.

Climate Change Denial in the Age of Trump

"Want to deal with this question of global warming. And what what provoked me is a tweet the president put out this Tuesday. In which he quoted a noted climate skeptic who claims to climate change is fake science, Trump cited the comments of Patrick more on Fox News and FOX and friends program which. Really disturbed me. Remember more was the co-founder of Greenpeace. And then he decided to flip his position. And he says the whole climate crisis is not only fake news. It's fake science. There is no climate crisis. There's weather and climate all around the world. And in fact, carbon dioxide is the main building block of all wife. By the way, according to Greenpeace more is not a co founder. But rather a paid spokesman for a variety of polluting industries for more than thirty years. By the way, Moore is not a climate scientist. He does have a degree in forest, biology and ecology. But these he says he's an and Trump himself is an aggressive critical climate change and has been for years. When you take a look at the Trump Twitter archive. It turns up over a hundred tweets in which President Trump mentions global warming and thirty six in which he uses the phrase climate change. But what's what's fascinating about? It is that. All of these mentions expressed serious skepticism about climate change. Trump has tweeted dozens of times about how it's so cold whenever he is in New York or in Washington during the winter. And how that debunks the idea that the climate is changing. He also seems fixated at least for a time. I made the scientists were changing the preferred nomenclature from global warming to climate change. So I want to ask a question because students walked out of class today all across the country and indeed around the world. Because they believe that climate change is real and will affect their lives. So when you hear the president of the United States. Doubting by the way, disputing scientific evidence. Indeed, the president made it very clear in a statement made recently. That when he was asked about findings that the White House itself had come up with. Or departments of the executive branch about unchecked global warming, which could wreak havoc on the US Konami. He said, I don't believe it, by the way. So you know, it the military in American intelligence disagree with him. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten. Does the issue of the president's denial of global warming and students going into the streets. Walking out of class. Does that impact on you? Does it matter? And what does it mean? When a president of the United States denies science. Let's go to Matt calling from agnosio. Matt welcome to K G O. Hi there. John congratulations on your new gig. And of course, this there's this is a global warming and climate change. They are important topics to discuss before I get into it a real real quick. Global warming joke for you. Why does Donald Trump not believe in global warming? Tell me because he took in too many giants games at Candlestick Park during the month of June. I love it. I love it. It's true. But you had a question Matt fire away. Yeah. I was wondering if you address this John on global warming and climate change. What do you think is gonna be the case say us both the polar ice caps melted? One hundred percent what if all the ice melted. We know there'd be a flood in this world. I remember the movie Waterworld, I guess that would be the equivalent. But we know that isn't the danger, but the danger is the seas rising. And if you go to Oakland airport or San Francisco airport, we know that they are very concerned about it. And indeed we are dealing now with maybe building dikes here. No, Matt it's a serious question. Did you know that today close to one hundred Los Altos high school students took to the streets to protest the Trump administration and federal legislators for inaction on climate change those students marching today. Describe it as an existential threat to the planet. And they believe it will deeply affect generations to come. They marched down. San Antonio road to the corner of El Camino real this morning. Chanting for climate Justice and against public support for fossil fuel industry. Now. Wait, there is a lawsuit and sixty minutes featured this of the just the other day, it's working its way through the courts to make sure that the courts rule if there really is a climate change issue, and and the student leaders conforming with that released a statement calling out the failure of governments around the world to take effective steps to address climate change. They call it an impending catastrophe. And they call for the government officials to. I don't know if the green new deal is the way to go. There are many disputes about that. But the students are right. I believe when in their statement, they said, we're at one of the most critical points in human history. If action is not taken right now, we will be facing a task trophy unparalleled by anything the world has ever seen before. We they write the young people are striking that is they walked out of school today because we are scared for our future. We are skipping school because there is no point in staying in school to study for a future. We will not have. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten how do you answer these students? What do you say to them? What what what do you think of their position? And and part of this is that the Trump administration appears to be rolling back climate change initiatives even denying that exists. Trump has tweeted that global warming is a Chinese hoax. You know, it's it's it's a desperate situation. And just so you know, what happened today those laws does high school students walked out in solidarity with an international protests among children and teens. Demonstrating nearly one hundred countries across the globe. All under the banner of a movement called Fridays for future. And I gotta tell you many of these young local protesters here in our own area were inspired at least in part by sixteen year old Swedish activists, Greta Thunberg who began protesting climate change in August last year. And is largely credited with being the catalyst buying this international protests today. So I'm asking the adults that are listening and the kids that are listening. We have high school students listening thousands of students walked out of school to protest this, and you and I know that well at least one hundred twenty nations around the world. And in virtually every city in the United States. They're protesting for their future. I wanna get your comments. I want to know what you think of these student activists d think they're right. Do you think they're wrong? And do you think we? Should be listening. That's the question. I guess one other. Shouldn't the Trump administration? Be listening. And isn't Greta Thunberg that sixteen year old student in Sweden, by the way, the nominated for the Nobel peace prize by several Scandinavian elected officials. Don't you think what she is calling for is a wonderful thing. I do. I think it's great that the kids are out to protect

"I think you need to grasp any level of motivation or any way that you can get yourself motivated when people seem to to minimize what they're doing. I think that you can jump on that. And understandably this these questions were justified because in the beginning of the year we were wanting to and the end of the year we lost two in a row in December, which we hadn't done in a lot of years, and and didn't quick you don't particularly look great in Pittsburgh when we lost. So, but you know, is somebody had said it doesn't count for too much when it's done before thanksgiving after thanksgiving. It's very important. And so then then when the criticism or the questioning came on board, I think. It was these guys saying, hey enough of this nonsense. Lewis played patriot and footfall and Bella check and McDaniel, and these guys they they thrive on this stuff. And I know my son does to ready has your son always been this competitive. Yes. He has we had wall upstairs in in our bedroom that he threw with TV change or through that my wife hit it for about three years of high school till he went away to college. And then she moved the picture, and I discovered the the hole in the wall. And it was one of those things where he couldn't believe that something had occurred and put the the the TV remote through the wall. So yeah, he's. We used to have we go out and play a lot of golf together. And I remember one particular day we were on our way to Candlestick Park. See giants, but we stopped the golf course to play nine holes. And we would always bet and I bet a dollar against a car wash. And by by the time we've gotten to the seventh hole, of course, we always double or nothing. So by the time, we got seven toll the old OB about forty car washes. He ended up throwing the club into the tree. And I sent him to the car and told them the I'd never played golf with them again in his life, though, we ended up finishing up, but he went to to the car, and I went I finished the nine holes, the golf, and we went when off the Campbell's Candlestick Park, and he begged me that he'd never do it again, and we drove home and stop the goal porce of played another nine holes of golf, but that didn't stop him from thorough and golf clubs. Mr. very we. So appreciate your doing this a final thought, I know that he wants to continue playing, and I know that you want to continue playing which it never know when you will have the last opportunity for a moment like this most people never even get at once. So as you prepare for this weekend, you and your family, how would you describe your emotions and all of the families emotions as you get set to watch him at the age of forty one start in the Super Bowl.
