The San Francisco Giants will have to pay rent to the city of Santa Clara if they build a stadium on city land, City Manager Jennifer Sparacino said. The National League team wants to use 120 acres of municipal property--rent free--to build a 45,000-seat stadium. Sparacino has proposed a $5.4-million annual rent. Sparacino gave the Santa Clara City Council a list of 13 conditions, including one that the team and stadium develop and pay about $60 million in costs to prepare the stadium site.

"If they build it, we will come, no question," Giant vice president Corey Busch said. "We have never been happy with Candlestick. And neither have the fans."
