Baseball was doing quite well on the west coast. the sf seals were as good as any team and the Browns would have been at best the second best team on the coast.

Yeah, the San Francisco Seals had a local boy to play for them. His name was Dimaggio, Joe Dimaggio. You've heard of him. Joe, along with his older brother Vince and younger brother Dom, played for the Seals in the 1930's.
