Concurrent with the latest defeat was word from the front office '.hat pitcher Bob Chcsnes had been optioned to New Orleans of i Southern Association. Chcsnes' banishment to the minors gave the Pirates a battery at two of their farm clubs that cost them about $200,000. Fitzgerald Down The 29-year-old right hander cost the Buccas $65,000 in cash arid another $35.000 in players when he was purchased from San Francisco of the Pacific Coast League In 1947. Earlier this season, the Pirates shipped catcher Ed Fitz Gerald to Indianapolis of the American Association. Fitz Gerald had a reported tag of $100,000 on him when the Pirates bought him from Sacramento of the Pacific Coast League, When he departed he was battiiig a puny ,067.
