d. 1991 San Diego). Lived in Chicago. Moved 1937 to San Diego to play baseball for the San Diego
Padres minor league team. Later bought the team and ran it for a few
years until 1956.
Ted WILLIAMS played for him. According to Leslie O'CONNOR, "Bill
STARR was the keenest mind in baseball. Nobody was a better judge of
playing talent and he was unsurpassed as a negotiator. When I say he was
the smartest man in baseball, I don't exclude anybody. I rate him over
George WEISS of the Yankees, over Frank LANE of the Cardinals, over all of
'em." He was a pioneer and an innovator. In 1948, he opened the doors
to black players in the Coast League by acquiring John RITCHEY, the first
black player in that league's history. He wanted to build a new
baseball park, and several times bought large pieces of land and it didn't
work out so he sold it. He made a lot of money each time he sold the land and
then realized he should go into real estate.
