One Thing Certain, Edo Is Jobless At Present
[Tri-City Herald, Jan. 26, 1953]
Edo Vanni, former Vancouver manager, is becoming Mr. In and Out of the Western International league.
Back during the season, Vanni used to make frequent trips in and out from the outfield to the mound whenever his pitcher got into trouble. Now reports have Vanni in and out of the managership of the Tri-City Braves.
One thing is for certain—Vanni is out as far as the Vancouver managership is concerned. The Vancouver Daily Colonist [sic], quoting the Capilano front office, said Vanni had been sold to Tri-City.
Len Monheimer, new general manager of the Tri-City Braves said however, that the club hasn't bought Vanni nor hired him as manager. He said Eddie Fernandez of Pocatello and Vanni are both in the running for manager and if Fernandez is hired “we would like to have Vanni on the team if he would play without being manager.”
However, he emphasized, no decision is made yet and won't be until after Fernandez is interviewed, probably today.
Meanwhile, plans have been made for the meeting of Tri-City Athletic association stockholders tonight at 8 o'clock in the Kennewick City hall.
All stockholders, including those who have recently purchased stock either through the Tri-City Booster club or in later drives, should attend.
The chief business will be election of officers but several other problems will be discussed. It will also give the stockholders a chance to meet their No. 1 and tallest employee since Monheimer intends to attend the meeting.
