  • Montague finds Hoffman's wallet - reward pulled

    He could have at least offered him a couple of tix to the San Diego Hall of Champions.

    ST. LOUIS (AP) - Padres reliever Trevor Hoffman was going to offer a $100 reward to the man who found his wallet, then had second thoughts when he realized who it was.

    "I thought it might look funny, giving money to an umpire," Hoffman said.
    Hoffman took a cab from the team hotel to Busch Stadium on Tuesday and left his wallet in the back seat.

    Umpire Ed Montague later got into the same cab and recovered the wallet. Montague was waiting at the clubhouse door when Hoffman approached.

    "He asked me for some identification and I couldn't understand why he would be doing that," Hoffman said Thursday.

    When Montague handed the wallet over, Hoffman started to offer him a reward.

    "I stopped short of doing it when I realized how it would look," Hoffman said.

        What's interesting is that Hoffman was actually going to skip the game to look for his wallet.

        He correctly assumed his services wouldn' t be needed.

          I think it's interesting that we've all bought the "he found it by riding in the cab after Hoffman" story. Methinks this little incident has brought that oft-rumored Hoffman-Montague love affair into the light of day.
