Sierra FoodWineArt magazine gets a mention in the San Francisco Chronicle

My report last week from the Giant’s Spring Training season — including the couple I spotted wearing “his” and “hers” Juan Marichal and Johnny Roseboro jerseys, respectively — was republished in The Chronicle, in Leah Garchik’s column:
Thanks Leah!

Jeff Pelline, a former Chronicle reporter who nowadays publishes the magazine Sierra FoodWineArt, is a baseball fan who has gone to spring training for years. This year, Pelline’s Sierra Foothills Report blog reported that he had “met a couple with long memories” of the rivalry between the Giants and Dodgers. Specifically, he was wearing a Juan Marichal jersey, paying homage to the Giants pitcher; she was wearing a Johnny Roseboro jersey, paying homage to the Dodgers catcher.

In 1965, the Giants and the Dodgers were playing at Candlestick Park when Marichal and Roseboro got into a 14-minute-long fight that included the pitcher hitting the catcher with a baseball bat. Eventually, they mended fences and even became friends. Marichal was an honorary pallbearer and spoke at the 2002 funeral of Roseboro, saying that Roseboro’s forgiving him “was one of the best things that happened in my life.”
