"Sports are too much with us. Late and soon, sitting and watching -- mostly watching on television -- we lay waste our powers of identification and enthusiasm and, in time, attention as more and more closing rallies and crucial putts and late field goals and final playoffs and sudden deaths and world records and world championships unreel themselves ceaselessly before our half-lidded eyes."

Play "Misty" for me

Andy Dolich

   

Construction cranes are working overtime building new sports venues all over the country. Over the past few years every new palace of play opens its doors proclaiming "Welcome to the ultimate state-of-the-art" stadium, ballpark, or arena ... at least until the grand opening of the next venue.

 

There were several well-documented glitches in the debut season of the 49ers' new state-of-the-art Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. The team felt the heat from many quarters, but the actual rays of the sun burned as a major fan issue. Many complained it was too hot during the games. The Niners have decided they can cool down this burning issue.

 

Al Guido, the team's chief operating officer, recently told the Sacramento Bee that they will install air-cooling units in the corridors of the east side of Levi's Stadium, which was often blasted by the sun during afternoon games. Guido also said there will be misters in the plazas, and the 49ers may consider passing out hand fans that could act as misters for those seated in the exceptionally warm area.

 

There's also a chance more night games could be played, as Guido said the 49ers will be able to host Monday-night and Thursday-night games. Due to parking concerns, the only prime-time games hosted in the debut season of the stadium were on Sunday night and Thanksgiving night.

 

Levi's Stadium is a technological marvel, having introduced many fan-centric innovations. But fans being able to instantaneously order ice water to pour over their hot heads wasn't on the menu.

 

This latest and greatest building boom makes me think about the multisports facility that set the tone for the miracles that are now wowing fans from sea to shining sea. Whether it be the world's largest HD video board at AT&T Stadium in Dallas or hi-tech, hi-touch breakthroughs at Levi's Stadium, colleges, high schools and community youth-sports facilities are following in the pros' footsteps in the sports venue arms race.

 

Which original trendsetting sports and entertainment marvel was the first to have:

* Outstanding sight lines

* Three decks

* VIP clubs

* State-of-the-art acoustics

* Valet parking

* A plethora of rest rooms

* VIP suites fit for an emperor

* Elevators

* Retractable roof

* Public funding

* Naming rights and entitlements

* Iconic PA announcers

* Ushers, security and ticket takers in designer uniforms

* Fine dining restaurants

* Easy in, easy out, the first major building with 80 vomitoria

* First to use tix with unique UPC codes

 

If you guessed the 2,000-year-old Roman Colosseum, give yourself a thumbs-up.

 

No matter how many sports venue improvements have been made over the past two millennia, the human factor is still the most important part of the building equation. All legendary sports venues develop their own DNA and represent the heart and soul of their fan base before they can be judged truly iconic.

 

In today's world of private financing, teams have to generate hundreds of millions of dollars through personal seat licenses, corporate naming rights, presenting sponsorships, preferred sponsor providers, concession contracts, security contracts, parking providers, club-level naming rights, broadcast partners, portal advertisers and every other creative concept that will help pay for the building and operation of the venue.

 

Ultimately fans are paying to see great athletes create indelible moments in unscripted settings, no matter how cool or state-of-the-art the stadium packaging may be. Ask fans how the word stadium should be defined.

 

Speed of concession service

Traffic: easy in and out

Acres of affordable parking

Decency of fans (behave yourself!)

Innovationsthat benefit all fans

Utility for mobile devices

More bathrooms

 

In 1950 most teams in the Big Four pro sports played in privately financed and owned buildings. Over the past half-century, teams moved into facilities that were entirely financed or heavily subsidized by local tax revenues. Between 1990 and 1998, 46 stadiums, ballparks and arenas were built or retrofitted in the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL.

 

By 2000, 49 sports venues were under construction or in the planning stages. About two-thirds of the $22 billion spent on these 95 buildings came from public sources. Now the stadium cycle has come back to the equation, "Build it with your own money and they might come."


No matter how state-of-the-art the new stadiums may be, some organizations realize that actual fans with basic needs fill the seats. It is instructional that in the heart of the Silicon Valley, the world's center of innovation, the San Jose Earthquakes are proudly selling their new Avaya soccer palace as having the "largest outdoor bar in North America."

 

Longtime sports executive Andy Dolich has more than three decades of experience in the professional sports industry, mostly spent in the San Francisco Bay Area. This includes stints in the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL. He operates his consulting business, Dolich & Associates, in Los Altos.

Oakland: The city that changed the face of sports

Paul Brekke-Miesner

   

As a new baseball season approaches, the author of Home Field Advantage, The City the Changed the Face of Sports, reminds us of Oakland's great baseball history, as highlighted in the following

excerpt from his book.

 

"Oakland, as an incubator for major-leaguers, takes a back seat to no city." These words from legendary McClymonds High coach George Powles sum up one of the greatest baseball legacies in America. Powles remembered a time when major league baseball scouts rented apartments in Oakland for the duration of the baseball season during the 1940s and 1950s because there was so much talent around. This was especially true for one particular area of the city.

 

The area, which comprised "Little Italy," the Italian neighborhoods in the Temescal and Golden Gate communities of North Oakland, and the racial melting pot of West Oakland, had its best years of baseball production from the start of the 1930s to the end of the 1950s. The future major-leaguers played on the diamonds of Bayview Park (now Raimondi Park) and Bushrod Park and attended primarily Oakland Tech and McClymonds high schools, where they were fortunate to be mentored by skilled coaches like Powles and Tech's Al Kyte. The area's working-class neighborhoods were home to construction workers, small-shop owners, longshoremen, and steel foundry and railroad workers.

 

According to Powles, who played a significant role in producing 17 major-leaguers while coaching in Oakland, no other area of comparable size in the nation could compete with the number of major league baseball players produced in this small area of Oakland. The list includes four Hall of Famers, eight Most Valuable Players and a triple-crown winner. From such humble origins came the following:

  • Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, the first MVP in both leagues, a triple-crown winner and the first black manager in professional baseball who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
  • Hall of Famer Ernie Lombardi, the first catcher in history to win a major league batting title.
  • Taylor Douthit, who holds the major league record for putouts in a season by an outfielder.
  • Curt Flood, star outfielder of the St. Louis Cardinals, who fought major league baseball's reserve clause all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and paved the way for free agency in baseball.
  • Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson, baseball's greatest leadoff hitter, who holds the major league records for stolen bases and runs scored.
  • Ray Kremer, who holds the major league record for most consecutive home wins by a pitcher.
  • Rod Dedeaux, former baseball coach at the University of Southern California, who was named the collegiate Coach of the Century.
  • Glenn Burke, the first major league baseball player to proclaim his homosexuality.
  • Three players - Curt Roberts, Willie Tasby and Curt Flood -- who were the first black players to crack the regular lineup of their respective major league teams, the Pirates, Red Sox and Cardinals.

These are just some of the milestones and records established by baseball players from northwest Oakland. Other players from the area include Vada Pinson, Jesse Gonder, Lee Lacy, Bernie DeViveiros, Cookie Lavagetto, Joe Gaines, Len Gabrielson Sr. and Jr., Bill Wight, Lew Fonseca, J.W. Porter and Hall of Famer Harry Hooper.


 

George Powels

In a letter to Sports Illustrated in 1970, responding to claims from high school coaches in Los Angeles and St. Louis that their high schools had produced the most major league players, Powles wrote, "Now hear this from Northern California. A very small section of Oakland has two high schools that together have produced 29 major-leaguers. Oakland Technical, with 18, and McClymonds, Oakland's smallest public high school, with 12. (Each total includes Curt Flood, who played for both schools). Now let's hear from a school that can out produce Oakland Technical, or a coach who can match my friend Al Kyte." No retort to Powles in Sports Illustrated ever came.

 

Forty-five years have passed since that exchange in Sports Illustrated, but Tech High is still the second-ranked high school in America, having produced 22 major-leaguers, and the area has now produced over 40 players. The most recent baseball star from the area is Henderson, who was elected to baseball's Hall of Fame in 2009. 

 

Paul Brekke-Miesner was born and raised in Oakland. He has been a curator of exhibits on Oakland and East Bay sports history for several venues, including the Oakland Museum of California and the Major League All-Star Game in Oakland in 1987. Most recently he was a panelist and author on the history of the Oakland Athletic League and its legendary coach, George Powles, for the Baseball Hall of Fame's Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture in New York in 2009. Paul and his wife live in the Fruitvale area of Oakland and have two sons. The book is available in most book stores in the East Bay and on line at homefieldadvantage.info.
