Rossi Olive Oil

A Day at San Quentin:

"In 1931, a 17-year old boy Joe DiMaggio came in to play for the Rossi Olive Oil team in game against the San Quentin All-Stars. With the score tied at 4-4, the game was stopped when the inmates threw stuff out the windows and the Warden called dinner time." - story told by San Francisco old-timer
