San Diego Chapter Remembers PCL Legend Max West

SABR members gathered Sunday, January 11, 2004 at the Lane Field memorial to pay tribute to baseball great Max West who passed away in late December.

“Max had a special connection with San Diego and we had the pleasure and honor of his
participation last March at our special Ted Williams symposium, and then the next day where he spoke to us at our event dedicating the Lane Field Historical Marker,” said San Diego Ted Williams SABR Chapter President Tom Larwin in a recent newsletter.

A .pdf file (see right) of a Max West tribute published in the January 7, 2004 San Diego Union-Tribune by Jack Williams is attached.
