Charles S. "Chub" Feeney
Birth: Aug. 31, 1921
Death: Jan. 10, 1994

Major League Baseball Executive. Born in Orange, New Jersey, he was the grandson of Charles Stoneham, the owner of the National League New York Giants. After serving in the US Navy during World War II, he returned in 1946 and started working for his grandfather's franchise. In 1950, he was promoted to general manager and the Giants won the National League pennant in 1951 and won the World's Championship in 1954. He shocked New York City's National League fans in 1958 when he announced that the Giants, as well as the Dodgers, were relocating their teams to the West Coast. For the next following years, Feeney was a highly respected baseball executive and was elected President of the National Baseball League in 1970. In office, he was a traditionalist who resisted the incorporation of the Designated Hitter into the NL which made the league more popular. After he retired as President of the National Baseball League in 1986, he took the job as president of the San Diego Padres for about a year and a half. He died at age 72 in San Francisco, California. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
