[edit] Biographical Information

The father of Jim Campanis, Al Campanis was Scouting Director of the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1960 to 1968 and General Manager from 1969 until 1987. He lost his job after making allegedly insensitive racial comments on the TV show Nightline. His grandson, Jim Campanis, Jr., was a member of the 1988 U.S. Olympic Team but never made it to the bigs.

One of the few major league players who was born in Greece, Al's major league playing career consisted of 7 games in 1943.
