Genovese Firing Was Classless

October 16, 1994

The firing of super scout George Genovese was a classless act by the San Francisco Giants.

I cannot think of anyone who has done as much for local baseball as Genovese. He prowled the local ball fields and offered opportunity to players from all walks of life. You could literally field an all-star team from the players signed by Genovese.

How can the Giants justify keeping any other scouts ahead of Genovese? And to release him now, when he will not be able to draw any retirement benefits, is beyond belief.

Hopefully, George will be able to catch on with another team and hopefully it will be the Dodgers, for obvious reasons.

If he doesn't, the scores of successful major league players who got their starts thanks to George Genovese should rally behind him.
