San Jose Mayor Susan Hammer launched a campaign to win voter support for a $185-million stadium needed to bring the San Francisco Giants to San Jose.

Hammer told a group of about 2,000 business and government leaders that the baseball team would be a wise investment.

Meanwhile, San Francisco Supervisor Angela Alioto detailed a rival plan she hopes will keep the Giants from moving to San Jose.

The city would lease land for a new stadium at $1 per year, she proposed, and then $50 million to $60 million in private funding would be raised to help pay for a proposed $90 million stadium. The extra $30 million needed to build such a stadium in San Francisco would come from the Giants, who have made the same offer to San Jose.
