I'm not sure about the other two parks, but in San Francisco, it was the city and not the team that sold the naming rights and pocketed the money.
Before the 1996 trend of corporate-naming rights, what other stadiums changed their names (for corporate or non-corporate reasons)?
Did the old stadiums of the Brewers, Rangers, and Indians change names at some point?
