The "In The Building Pass," which is what they've been dubbed, are essentially only that: a ticket into the Oracle Arena, with no place to watch the court in person. Rather, pass holders can only watch the game at the arena's bars and club areas.

The incoming ownership group, on the verge of purchasing the team from Bob Lurie in December 1992, was going to sign Bonds no matter who would be the GM. In fact, the Bonds deal virtually was in place before the team's sale was made official. The point is, 26 years later, Larry Baer and friends don't need a GM or head of baseball...
