Gino Cimoli VS Cookie Lavagetto VS Con Dempsey VS Mark Koenig VS Tony ‘Push Them Up’ Lazzeri (For Dave Newhouse)


Gino cimoli I met him once in a café in San Francisco and North Beach disrupting his card game with his cronies he signed my 1961 tops pirate card. 

Tony lazzeri another Bay area guy who starred in the majors his nickname was push them up maybe because he got a lot of RBIs and not because he dressed in women’s clothing; 

December birthdays : I believe that Cookie Gino and Tony all had December birthdays .

Con Dempsey I guess I played against his son Dave or at least a suited in basketball Nolan Dempsey his grandson is in the Giants  org. 

Mark Koenig Dave Newhouse spoke of visiting him up in the wine country towards the end of his life and the connection between Babe Ruth’s famous called shot and Mark;

Lyman bostock this does not fit here but my baseball encyclopedia has his rookie season no indication of the pending doom; 

Hal Chase; another guy from the Bay Area from Los Gatos; 

Lawrence Ritter; The glory of their times.
