Wanted: Share your memories of Candlestick Park

December 15, 2013 

The Catch? The Earthquake? Maybe a Willie Mays home run, the shine of the rock-hard Astroturf or a frigid June night drinking hot chocolate (or something stiffer) while watching the Giants with friends and family.

When the San Francisco 49ers host the Atlanta Falcons on Dec. 23, it could be the last-ever game at Candlestick Park. The 49ers will play in their new Santa Clara digs next season.

The Bee would like readers to email us their favorite Candlestick memories or moments so we can share them with readers. We will publish some of them in next Sunday's Bee. Keep them to 200 words.

Just email your memories to sports@modbee.com by Thursday at noon.

Please leave your hometown and a phone number where you can be reached.

Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
