Former and Current
Klamath Falls Gems
Klamath Falls seemed home to a few of the great stars of the Far West League. One of them was a former Philadelphia Athletic by the name of Joe Gantenbein. Gantenbein was hired to be the teamís first manager, and being still rather young (32) Joe would pick up the bat periodically to try to help his team on the field as well as in the dugout. Gantenbein would put up an outstanding .368 with 14 2Bs, 6 3Bs and 6 HRs. Unfortunately since Gantenbeinís main occupation was to manage the team, he only participated in 67 games. His 190 At Bats werenít enough to qualify him for either the Far West Leagueís, or the teamís lead in hitting.
