Thanks for the Candlestick Memories . . .

I’m a longtime Giants fan, and now that it’s time to say goodbye to Candlestick, many of us are being hit with a big dose of nostalgia at the prospect of tearing down the stadium

Roberts Electric candlestick memories

Roberts Electric Owner Dan Pitcock grew up watching baseball at the Stick; like many Bay Area fans, he has a lot of great memories

that’s been the home to Hall of Fame legends like Vida Blue, Willie McCovey and the incomparable Willie Mays.

I remember going to doubleheaders as a 10-year old

I remember one doubleheader at The ‘Stick against the Houston Colt 45s in 1967; Juan Marichal pitched one of the games and Willie Mays hit homeruns to win both games. When I couldn’t get to the Stick, I had an old green beat-up radio, and I used to listen to Russ Hodges and Lon Simmons call the games. I was also lucky enough to go to the A’s games during the Reggie Jackson heyday when they went to World Series.

I continued my love of baseball by coaching my son for many years–from little league through All-Stars, where we won District and Sectionals one year. Being able to share this experience with my son is an experience that I will treasure. My being on the Board of Oakland’s Field of Dreams and our advertising on Marty Lurie’s weekend show are other ways that I continue to support my love of baseball.
