Missing Giants fan Billy Chamberlain turns up in Los Angeles

10 Comments

Giants fan Billy Chamberlain turned up for the team’s game in Los Angeles on Tuesday.  The homeless 49-year-old, previously a fixture outside the Giants clubhouse in San Francisco for five years, said he’d been living in Southern California for awhile and that he had no idea the Giants had started a campaign to find him.

Chamberlain was featured in several articles earlier this month after he stopped showing up to Giants games at the end of July.  The Giants had posted his photo on the scoreboard during games in an effort to discover his whereabouts.

While he’s living in SoCal now, Chamberlain remains very much a Giants supporter.  He said he tried to see the team in San Diego earlier this month, but that security shooed him away at the time.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Free-agent ace Jacob deGrom and the Texas Rangers agreed to a five-year contract Friday.

The two-time Cy Young Award winner leaves the New York Mets after nine seasons — the past two shortened by injuries.

After making his first start last season in early August, deGrom went 5-4 with a 3.08 ERA. He helped the Mets reach the playoffs, then opted out of his contract to become a free agent.

Texas announced the signing Friday night after the 34-year-old deGrom passed his physical.
