ktvu sal castaneda went to the interactive museum at levi stadium to learn about the team's history. the signs are up, heralding the reopening of the 49ers museum for the first time since it closed for the pandemic. i had the chance to explore this museum at levi stadium in santa clara with two 49ers legends dennis brown and steve bono. fans will remember steve bono as backup quarterback to joe montana and steve young, when both montana and young got hurt in 1991. bono went five and one as the starter and endeared himself to the faithful. oh, no, still has fond memories of that era. it was a special place. i was here for five years won one super bowl won a super bowl on each end of me being here and went to the nfc championship game four times in the five years that i was here, so that's some pretty good teams. dennis brown played defensive end for the niners from 1990 to 1996. brown was an imposing figure playing
12:56 pm
with a very good 49ers defense. i specifically remember brown, making the life of opposing quarterbacks miserable. i was lucky i came in with a very good defensive line, and i was able to learn a lot from these guys and guys in here, charles haley. you know ronnie lott. you know these guys, guys like this. it just made it really easy for me to be an nfl defensive lineman. here's a good friend of yours. you might know this guy. it was an obvious point of pride for bono and browned to show me the team's heritage as represented by this breathtaking collection everywhere you look there is 49ers history from all eras from the beginning to the present. it's only fitting that here in the silicon valley, the museum takes advantage. of the latest technology. this is the all time roster. so anybody you're looking for? you can come in here. you just type in their name, and that person comes up. let's get bone up here. look at that young cat. oh my god, steve. my hair was all black at that time, too, bro in the museum. they have set up coach. bill washes office, complete with the

12:58 pm
into the room where they keep the five super bowl trophies. oh my goodness! you talk about you know the team and kind of what it means to the bay area, and i think it's about it's about this is the championships on steve. this is what it's all about right here. you can also see the super bowl rings just like the ones the players received after winning it all. if you're a big 49ers stand, you should definitely consider making the trip to this museum at levi stadium in santa clara sal castaneda ktvu fox two news. great history. there were major league baseball says it will return to iowa next year for another field of dreams. game, last night movie star kevin costner first came out to a standing ovation and then like his film field of dreams, players started walking out of the corn field. as for the game, it was an ending befitting a hollywood film. new york yankees came from behind and
