(AP) - On May 9th, eight Weaver League owners met for an historic
summit at the Oakland Coliseum. The meeting is the first of
what hopefully will become a semi-regular event. Those attending
witnessed the pounding of the lowly Chicago White Sox by the
All-Powerful Oakland Athletics by a final score of 15-7!
Charles "a.k.a. Marty" Polanski was able to find time in his
busy schedule to make the drive up from Los Angeles to attend
the summit. Other in attendance were me (Jim Lockwood), Rob
Wyatt, Tony Robles, and new owners Eric Cochran, Jimmy Moock,
and Steve Whittimer. Tony offered to barbecue and served up
some tasty burgers and hot dogs in the parking lot before
to attend due to having to pay the salaries of Bob Gibson
and Reggie Sanders was Kabul owner Matt Etzler, so after the
game I drove with Marty and Rob to Matt's apartment on the
campus of Sonoma State University to hang with him for a while.
We played pool where I proceeded to kick everyone's ass! Disclaimer:
I'm just kidding, I made that part up. I suck at pool.
I was the one getting my ass kicked.
