former on the roof in right-
center field. "And, of course,
the 1984 World Series and
Championship playoffs were
highlights." Detroit's 1972
AL East title is a vivid
memory, but the Tigers were
"robbed" by an umpire's bad
call in the final game that
cost them the pennant, Mat-
lin said.
Matlin got his first taste of
baseball's executive side as
business manager of the
Bakersfield club, a position
he held between 1948-1952.
He recalled another story
from those years. The team
had signed five or six Mexi-
can players in 1951 and one
of them ate pancakes every
morning. "We investigated
(and found) that he had
breakfast one Morning with
his roommate and he (the
roommate) had pancakes,"
Matlin said. "That was the
only ward of English that he
knew and so he had pan-
cakes everyday."
Not all the recollections
are light.
"Probably the most miser-
able night I ever spent with
a ballclub was when San-
tiago Rosario hit Merritt
Renew over the head with a
bat in Vancouver in 1966,"
Matlin said, recalling his
days as general manager and
executive vice president with
Vancouver, British Colum-
bia, of the Triple A Pacific
Coast League.
Vancouver first baseman
Rosario was standing in the
on-deck circle during a game
against Seattle's Triple A
club when Seattle pitcher
Jim Coates hit batter
Ricardo Joseph with a pitch.
"He had hit Joseph two or
three times over the years,"
Matlin said. "This time
Joseph walked out to the
mound to ask him why (he
did that). Coates takes off
and runs. Merritt Renew,
who was the catcher for the
Seattle club, jumps on
Joseph's back to wrestle him
down ...
Rosario, "a very nice, calm,
tranquil guy" and "the last
person you would expect to
swing a bat," hit Renew over
the head, Matlin said. "Mer-
ritt later had some tough
times. He came back and
played baseball again, but
that was a's very bad experi-
ence, a very trying experi-
ence. It was miserable. I sus-
pended Rosario after the
game. We got him out of the
country, out of Canada, and
back to Puerto Rico. The
