Candlestick Park to be demolished after '13
The San Francisco Chronicle reports the stadium will be imploded within weeks of the 49ers' season finale. Development plans for a new outdoor shopping center in its place are already in motion.
Candlestick Park is the site of some of the most memorable games in NFL history. Most notably, the 1982 NFC Championship game when Joe Montana connected with Dwight Clark for "The Catch." In the 1991 NFC Championship game, the New York Giants upset the two-time defending Super Bowl champion 49ers in what is widely considered one of the most physical contests in NFL history.
Baseball's San Francisco Giants played at Candlestick Park from 1960 - 2000. The Beatles' last concert was held at Candlestick Park in 1966.
