John Montefusco Answering Reporter

(Original Caption) What A Beauty! San Francisco: The increasing incidence of violence in sports is causing some concern in various quarters. Here, San Francisco Giants' John Montefusco displays a blackened right eye as he sits in clubhouse June 19th following batting practice. Montefusco alleges that his manager, Dave Bristol, committed the mayhem after the Giants-New York Mets game June 18th. Montefusco was pulled from that game in the ninth inning and demanded a talk with Bristol in the latter's office. The talk apparently deteriorated into a physical encounter, leaving Montefusco with this beautiful shiner.
