49ers Blog and Q&A

News, notes and reader questions about the San Francisco 49ers

New coach. New voice of the 49ers. New uniforms. All will be unveiled at the 49ers draft party on April 25 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. The free event runs from noon to 4 p.m. on the opening day of the draft.

The new threads -- believed to be similar to the "throwbacks" the team has worn in recent seasons -- will be displayed before the draft begins. After the 49ers make their selection in the first round, head coach Mike Singletary will arrive at the convention center to address the crowd. Current and former players also will be on hand for a Q&A that will be mc'd by radio announcers Gary Plummer and Ted Robinson, who is taking over for longtime play-by-play man Joe Starkey.

Season ticket holders will get first dibs on the free tickets. They can sign up for tickets on Monday, March 30 and the general public can sign up the following Thursday, April 2. To obtain tickets, fans must register online at www.49ers.com. Tickets are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. One printed ticket admits up to 2 people.

It's been awfully slow in 49ers land since the minicamp. However, it looks like there might be a resolution re: Marvel Smith later today. Stay tuned ...
