On this date, 1992: Giants owner Bob Lurie loses fourth stadium vote

(This story was originally published on June 3, 1992)

Now where?

San Jose voters’ rejection of Measure G on Tuesday leaves the oft-jilted Giants with few viable alternatives.

Owner Bob Lurie has said the Giants won’t play at Candlestick Park beyond the expiration of their lease in 1994. San Francisco Supervisor Angela Alioto has put together a proposal to build a ballpark at Seventh and Townsend, but it might include a user’s tax requiring voter approval from a city that has rejected them twice. And though there are several cities outside the Bay Area that covet the Giants, each brings its own set of problems.
