Title: The Future of Giant Baseball
Program Date: Apr 18, 1985
Location: California
Duration: -
Summary: Bob Lurie had previously announced that after this season, his team will no
longer play in San Francisco due to the state of disrepair of the
Candlestick Park. In his speech, he explains what a wonderful sport
baseball is but how the team is always faced with challenges each year
whether in the form of a strike by the players or umpires, etc. This year,
he said that their major challenge was finding a respectable park for the
team to play in. He discusses other locations in the Bay Area that the team
could move to, including Redwood City, San Jose, and Milpitas. He dislikes
the designated hitter rule, arguing both leagues should play under the same
rules. He likes the expanded play-off schedule.
