- I retired from the food industry (salesman)in 1996.Bought a motor home, stored all the goods that we thought we might need when we found a place to light. Left California, where we were both natives, and took off to see America.After five years we had found the Ozarks of Arkansas and fell in love with the beauty and ruralness. We sold the motor home and bought a home here. Hauled all of our belongings from Calif. found lots of new friends and a good church.Our town and surrounding area has a population of about 11,000. The closest big town is about 12 miles South of us.I belong and sit on the board of the Dover Chamber of Commerce. Life is good here.

Players and managers
Now let's talk abot some of the players who were around then. Joe DiMaggio played a short while for the S.F. seals. Ted Williams for the Padres. other names I can think of now are Roberto Clemente for the Stars. Al Rosen , Luke Easter, and Bob Lemon, for the Padres These players were all to become great players in the majors. Some notables that came down from the majors to finish out their careers were, Ernie Lombardi from the Yankees. Dick Sisler I believe from the Phillies. Cupie Barret who I saw pitch a no hitter against the Padres in a seven innig night cap game on a Sunday. He played for Oakland at the time. Managers like Lefty O'Doul, S.F: Fred Haney for Hollywood who was the play by play announcer and promoted to mgr. and then up to the Pirates where he won a pennant and a World series. Bucky Harris for the Padres and then Jimmy Reese who was a coach for the Padres , became Mgr. and won the first pennant for them in 1953. By 1953 most of the teams had a major league affiliate.
