The San Francisco Planning Commission has approved plans for a huge play structure in the shape of a Coke bottle. The 80-foot-long, 40-foot-high fixture will be placed inside Pacific Bell Park on a platform behind the left-field bleachers.
The structure will hold a slide and sit in a 34,000 square-foot children's play area. The area will also feature three miniature practice fields and a huge baseball glove.
The Giants told the commission before yesterday's vote that the Coke structure is part of an advertising deal that will help the team pay for the privately-financed stadium.
