1958: Jerry Guibor pitches Manteca Legion to victory
Fifty years ago, on June 14, 1968, Phil Brown, a 1968 graduate of Manteca High and presently a pitcher on the McFall-Grisham American Legion Post baseball team, was drafted this week by the National League Chicago Cubs in the annual major league player draft. He signed a one-year contract with the Cubs, calling for a reported $10,000 and college scholarship stipulations. Brown, 17, left yesterday for Caldwell, Idaho, where the Pioneer Rookie League play begins Saturday.
