A party to spread the idea of renaming SBC Park to Mays Field

I got this notice from an organized effort to rename SBC Park to Mays Field:

To all Giants Bloggers and Friends of Mays Field:
Mays Field Party: Sat., April 9th @ The Brickhouse Cafe
(Please help us spread the word by forwarding this message or linking
to http://www.maysfield.org/2005/03/mays_field_part.html. Thanks!)
We're planning our first Mays Field party of the season! It'll be at
the Brickhouse Cafe during and after the game on Saturday, April 9th.
And you'll get $1.00 off their usual game-day specials if you're
wearing Mays Field gear. Here are the basics, and more details will
be coming soon:
WHEN: Saturday, April 9th, during and after the 1pm game against the Rockies
WHERE: The Brickhouse Cafe
426 Brannan Street (between Third & Fourth)
San Francisco, CA 94107
DIRECTIONS: The Brickhouse is just 2.5 blocks from the stadium. Here's
a Google Map with precise directions, but it's easy to find:
1. From the corner of King & Third (by the statue of Willie Mays),
walk 2 blocks north on Third, toward Market.
2. Turn left on Brannan, toward Fourth. The Brickhouse is on the
north side of the street, just past an alley called Rich Street.
3. Look for a Mays Field bumper sticker on the front door!

WHAT: The Brickhouse has great food, a full bar, and a special deal
for Mays Field fans: anyone wearing Mays Field gear will get $1.00 off
their usual game-day $2.00 PBRs and $3.00 Micros. That's $1.00 PBRs
and $2.00 Micros, just for showing your support for Mays Field!
Watch www.MaysField.org for more details, and we'll see you on April
9th at the Brickhouse!

While I would love to honor Willie Mays in this way, I don't know what the odds are of accomplishing this because SBC/AT&T owns the rights for, what, another 19 years or so. The best I can see happening is maybe SBC Park at Mays Field, or something like that similar to what the Angels are doing to include Anaheim.
