GIANTS NOTEBOOK
Uribe gets big welcome in clubhouse
John Shea

Sunday, June 23, 2002


Before the news of Darryl Kile reached the Giants' clubhouse, Jose Uribe walked through and heard a familiar chant: "Oooo-ree-bay." It was manager Dusty Baker, who hugged the former shortstop and invited him into his office.

"It's the first time I've been back since I retired," said Uribe, who last played in 1992, before stepping aside for Royce Clayton. "This is a great area,

and a lot of people here treated me well. My No. 1 memory in baseball, one of the great moments of my life, was the (1989) World Series . . . before the earthquake."

Uribe is in town for today's reunion of Latin American Giants and will be honored before the game. He lives in the Dominican, where he entered the real estate business and owns a hardware store. Regarding the rumor that he became a mayor, Uribe said it never happened, though it nearly did, and he remains a civic leader in Juan Baron.

When Uribe visited the broadcast booth, Mike Krukow placed a call to Robby Thompson so Uribe could speak with his old double-play partner. One of Uribe's eight kids, Rique, is 14 and told his father he wants to grow up and be like Will Clark.

"I'm trying to work for the (Giants') organization, teaching their minor- leaguers in the Dominican," said Uribe, whose fear of flying is one reason he hadn't returned to San Francisco before now. "I follow the Giants back home, and it's nice to be back."

Breaking News: Jose Uribe killed in car crash...


Very sad. U-ribe was one of the many reasons I got hooked on the Giants from such a young age.

Maybe we can organize a rebirth of the U-ribe chant when they honor him. For good times sake.

A competitor will find a way to win. Competitors take bad breaks and drive themselves just that much harder. Quitters take bad breaks and use them as excuses to give up. It’s all a matter of pride. - W. Churchill
