Stu Holcomb - Professional Sports Administrator

Professional Sports Administrator

Holcomb was appointed as the general manager of the Chicago Mustangs, a United Soccer Association franchise owned by Arthur and John Allyn. After the Mustangs folded following the 1968 season, Holcomb was reassigned to the Chicago White Sox, another of the Allyn brothers' business entities, as its public relations director.

He was promoted to replace Ed Short as general manager in September 1970, the last month of a season in which the White Sox finished with its worst record in team history at 56–106. He began overhauling the ballclub by firing manager Don Gutteridge and replacing him with Chuck Tanner (third-base coach Bill Adair served as the interim for ten games during the transition).

Famous quotes containing the words professional and/or sports:

    I trust it will not be giving away professional secrets to say that many readers would be surprised, perhaps shocked, at the questions which some newspaper editors will put to a defenseless woman under the guise of flattery.
    Kate Chopin (1851–1904)

    Even from their infancy we frame them to the sports of love: their instruction, behaviour, attire, grace, learning and all their words aimeth only at love, respects only affection. Their nurses and their keepers imprint no other thing in them.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
