Doctor's Order Benches Manager of Spokane club
SPOKANE, July 2 — Ben Geraghty, newly appointed manager of the Spokane Indians baseball club, was "benched" Tuesday on doctor's orders and will not handle the team when it reopens its Western International league play against the Yakima Stars in a doubleheader in July, owner Sam Collins disclosed.
Collins says that under a "temporary" switch, Glenn Wright, former manager team manager, will handle the club until Garaghty returns.
Geraghty suffered a fractured knee cap and head injuries in the bus accident a week ago that claimed the lives of nine Spokane players.
