San Francisco Giants podcast with Michael Duca: Dedication to former N.L. executive Katy Feeney; plus all the latest that’s Giants

MLB, San Francisco Giants

By Michael Duca

SAN FRANCISCO–This is the first opening day since 1885 where neither former Philadelphia A’s manager Connie Mack or former Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully have been actively involved in MLB. It’s also the very first opening day since 1918 that it did not include a member of the Stonham family. Charles Stonham who owned the New York Ginats in 1919 then his son Horace Stonham took over to own the Giants in 1936 and owned them until 1976. Then his son in law Chub Feeney was president of the National League and then Chub’s daughter Katy Feeney was executive of MLB until she past last Sunday.

That was a terrific loss for baseball I wanted to take a moment to get that in because Katy was a special person she had done the scheduling for baseball for years.  She worked club relations and always ran during post season the media scrum in the back of the game and did it with kindness, sweetness, a smile, and a gentility that will be missed.
