April Speaker:

Aprilís luncheon speaker was Dan Orum, President & CEO of the San Jose Giants baseball organization. We learned the San Jose Giants are owned by the San Francisco Giants with only five major league teams owning a minor team. The SJG have produced 163 major league players with 117 going initially to the SFG. Dan talked about the playerís selections out of spring training and their tough schedules and the probability of making major leagues. Approximately 15 % will make the majors. In addition, he covered the 73 years history of the San Jose team playing at the San Jose stadium built as a WPA project for $50,000. The Giants are heavily involved with the local community and the family sponsorship program where families provide room and board for the players was discussed. Dan fielded many questions from our members to round out the talk. Our sports interested members had very pertinent questions that provided everyone answers and information on the San Jose Giants.

Four members answered Danís quiz questions and received box tickets to any game they choose this season.

Don Rosenbaum
