Candlestick staff to remain through closing events


The San Francisco Chronicle reports that San Francisco Recreation and Park Department officials plan to keep the Candlestick Park's staff of 15 while they work to secure a series of closing events.

Officials told the Chronicle there is nothing to announce yet, but said they are considering exhibition soccer matches and celebrity games featuring past 49ers and Giants stars, as well as a community day open house.

Their biggest hope is a farewell concert starring Paul McCartney late in the summer or early in the fall.
