On August 10, 2005 — Radio talk-show host Larry Krueger, who caused an uproar in the team’s clubhouse, is fired by KNBR, the flagship station of the Giants, for making inappropriate racial remarks. During a postgame rant the controversial on-air personality said the team had too many “brain-dead Caribbean hitters” and tells his listeners that manager Felipe Alou’s mind “has turned to Cream of Wheat”.
