Candlestick Park has been around for a while and has seen it’s ups and downs. The ups of all those Super Bowls the San Francisco 49ers won in the 80s and 90s, and the downs of the troubled former owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. It was a symbiotic relationship, though, because without DeBartolo there wouldn’t have been the Super Bowls.
One of the most prolific quarterbacks in the history of the NFL played for the Niners during his time, so it was only fitting that the last touchdown scored in Candlestick Park was by Eddie DeBartolo Jr. on a pass from Joe Montana.
As you can see on the video below, DeBartolo comes out of nowhere and catches the two-yard dump pass by Montana. He is then lifted up on the shoulders of past players amidst the roar of more than 20,000 fans on hand to watch.
The 49ers will move to their new stadium in Santa Clara this year with DeBartolo’s nephew, Jed York, running the operation.
