The “Real” Last of the Seals

Former San Francisco Seals batboy Bill Castellanos shared this picture with me. Bill lived during one winter inside Seals Stadium and he was there for the famed last season in 1957 that provides the backdrop for my new book “Last of the Seals.” Picture are (left to right) Jim Moran, second baseman for the Seals, Bill and Don Rode, Seals assistant trainer from 1951-55.


About gregmessel

I've written six novels and am working on a seventh. My first three novels were "Expiation," "Sunbreaks" and "The Illusion of Certainty." I'm now working on a series of mysteries set in San Francisco in the 1950s. In 2008, I retired from corporate life and so I can spend more time writing. I spent over ten years in the newspaper business. I now live on Puget Sound in Edmonds, Washington, just north of downtown Seattle.
