  • Notes

    • ED MONTAGUE: Long before he was a baseball scout, Ed Montague played in the major leagues from 1929-1933 as an outfielder for the Cleveland Indians - the very team his Giants just beat in the 1954 World Series! As of 2005, his son, Ed Montague, Jr., is currently a veteran MLB (Major League Baseball) umpire, and was the crew chief of the umpiring crew which just worked the 2004 World Series. Ed Jr. has been a MLB umpire for 30 years now - one of the longest careers in major league umpiring history. Only Bill Klem (36 years), Bruce Froemming (34 years and counting) and Tom Connolly (30 years) have umpired in the bigs as long. Ed Montague, Sr. passed away on June 17, 1988. - exapno99 (Lou) (2005)

      MYSTERY GUEST: Jeff Chandler used several good impersonations during his game. His "domestic affairs" problems were briefly mentioned. They may have been regarding his 1954 divorce from his wife, Marjorie Hoshelle. He closed his game by saying "good night" to his two daughters, Jamie and Dana. Chandler's life came to a sad end. At age 42 in June 1961, he died of blood poisoning following surgery for a slipped spinal disc. - Suzanne (2005)
