Hola! Una pregunta: como puedo demandar una factura de un hotel que no me la quiere dar?

Me quede en el hotel tres noches y le pregunte a la due帽a que si daban factura, me dijo que si pero que necesitaba pagar el IVA... no hubo problema, lo hice pero ahora que no estoy cerca no me responde. Busque en Google como le puedo hacer y dicen que debo exigir una factura por el SAT, pero no tengo su RFC del negocio o de la due帽a... Un compa que vive ahi me confirmo que si dan factura, que a el le han dado... asi que puedo pedirle una factura a el y demandarla por el SAT... pero hay otra manera mas facil?

2023.06.01 21:00 krectus Everything from the Meta Gaming Showcase and more. Thoughts and recap

Overall to sum it up this was par for the course, the same as before with their gaming showcases, some good stuff, but ultimately a bit disappointing overall. There is a sense that there will be more Quest 3 exclusives to show off once that gets fully revealed, but for now who knows, it's all speculation. Good news is everything shown off is available for Quest 2 as well. And they finished with AG2, so at least one AAA game to show off this time.
Lets get on with it.
Asgard's Wrath II -
The big one, the standout, the AAA Meta title everyone's been hoping for with these things. Looks amazing, just pure glorious VR gameplay that seems to be everything you want in a VR game. Quest exclusive so no PCVR version, the official nail in the PCVR Meta coffin (RIP). Finally something big from Sanzaru. Coming out "Winter 2023", so December? why not just say December 2023.
Also of note, a bit of a disappointment here that AG1 didn't get a Quest port. Would have been cool if while you wait for 2, you can now play the first one on Quest. Weird to be releasing a sequel to something a lot of people can't play the original for. But that's console gaming sometimes. Maybe, just maybe AG1 will be ported to Quest 3 and be a free included game when you buy Quest 3!!! Maybe...we can hope.
Bulletstorm -
Looks pretty good, looks just like what you'd think a game called Bulletstorm would be. But still kind of just another VR shooter but some giant monster bosses.
Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord -
Yes this again. Finally getting a little more firm release, "This Fall". Still looks really fun, should be one of the biggest VR games of the year, also going to be big on PSVR2 most likely. Really cool looking, but one we've already seen stuff from, not much new here.
Attack on Titan -
I know nothing of this franchise, but looks like you can fly around attacking a giant creepy naked guy, for those that are into that kinda thing, get excited it's "coming this winter". But seriously, always good to see big franchises jumping into VR.
Stranger Things -
Speaking of big franchises jumping into VR. This is a big one and this game looks so so...meh. You play as Vecna, the bad guy in some very average looking gameplay. Probably not what a lot of people were hoping for, doesn't look like any of the cast is involved. Looks like a typical mediocre videogame tie-in. But you know, it's something.
Arizona Sunshine 2 -
Already announced recently (weird) so a bit of a weak showing here. BUT this could be the best game of the year, the original was amazing, this has such great potential, keep an eye on this one. Really cool to be getting a sequel for this one.
7th Guest -
Well here's a name most people haven't heard in 30 years and totally forgot existed. Can't say I'm too familiar. But the trailer does look pretty good, Vertigo Games on this one so it should be good.
Dungeons of Eternity -
A rougelike dungeon crawler that looks...not bad. Kinda cool. But then Asgard's Wrath II showcased they've got something like this as a side part in their game. This could be fun multiplayer though. But nothing too great looking.
Vampire: too many titles -
From the company that brought you Wraith: Too many titles. A cool concept here being a vampire roaming around stalking people, but doesn't look all that amazing, has some good potential, just like Wraith.
Silent Slayer - Vault of the Vampire -
What's this another wordy vampire game? Yes! Not much to show off, but the concept seems cool, having to stay as silent as possible. A good use of VR, if they pull if off well.
Racket Club -
Oh god this is a horrible awkward, lame looking trailer. But, I mean it kinda does look like a fun little racket game, I guess.
Underdogs -
Not what I was expecting as the next game from the RacketNX team, but a cool looking Mech battle game. Looks like a good use of VR.
I Expect You to Die 3 -
Already known, but showed off a new trailer. Coming out Summer 2023, so actually something coming out soon!
Samba De Amigo -
They started out with this. Not a good start. Not sure what this is, I guess it's a big thing? I mean it looks like a fun rhythm game, lots of famous songs and...SEGA?! but yeah it's another rhythm game.
PowerWash Simulator -
Didn't make the showcase, but it's coming to Quests this year. It's a real thing alright.
We Are One -
A game that's out now! A unique looking puzzle shooter.
Demeo Battles -
I've never played Demeo but this looks like more Demeo. No real release date here though.
Death Game Hotel -
A japanese gambling tournament game? Story based, where you have to bet your limbs. ooookay.
No More Rainbows -
Destroying cute little adorable creatures. This looks good.
Onward update -
Looks like Onward is getting a nice update, glad to see it.
Walkabout Mini Golf update -
Looks like Exploding kittens, lasers and crossplay with iOS...weird.
Little Cities update -
Nice to see this game keep getting updated. It was a bit lacking at launch but seems to have some nice improvements.

They also mentioned Assassin's Creed will be showcased at Ubisoft's event. Didn't even get to show off a teaser, don't you dare take Ubisoft's thunder here Meta.
Didn't show of Behemoth of San Andreas. Might not be for Quest 3.
EDIT: Oops, totally forgot to include they actually announced and revealed a bit of the Quest 3!

2023.06.01 20:21 Flaky-Event-3979 I want to have an animal centered career but I鈥檝e been out of the game for so long I don鈥檛 know where to start.

I鈥檓 27F and live in Southern California, 4 years ago I was going to school at San Francisco State attempting to get a bachelors in biology and hoping to eventually get to veterinary school. Although this is not an excuse, school was incredibly tremulous for me and bc of some financial, mental and emotional issues I dropped out. Throughout that entire time though, the most enjoyable thing I found about my academic career was all the volunteer work I did in animal hospitals and animal shelters. I was incredibly fortunate to have an animal hospital near me that let me be incredibly hands on, sitting in on surgeries, assisting with blood draws, waking patients from surgeries, preparing patients for surgeries and the like. I volunteered for around 6 months but it was definitely the best six months of my entire schooling, now I鈥檓 home and a real estate agent and have a few other part time jobs to save money. I do enjoy being a realtor but animals still definitely hold a special place. I enjoy real estate bc it鈥檚 giving me the opportunity to set up a better future for my family, I have no kids but my dad works incredibly hard and I want to build a better future for him and my other immediate family. Unfortunately I鈥檝e noticed that other than veterinary work, animal based careers don鈥檛 pay much and while money isn鈥檛 everything it is important to the future I鈥檓 trying to create for my family. I do however want to get back into the field one way or another. I love working with animals, especially exotics. Along with my boyfriends dog, I own two snakes, a crested gecko, and a tarantula and working with animals such as these would be an absolute dream some day. I鈥檓 simply looking for advice at this point as to where to go next, I鈥檓 at a loss as to what my next steps should be to work where I want. I want to see if maybe I could replace some of my current part times with more animal based ones, however I know that a lot of them take schooling and I don鈥檛 know how to start that. I鈥檝e looked into volunteer opportunities at zoos and such however their previous experience sections are very dense and much less than what I have. I鈥檝e worked in dog daycares and reception at animal hospitals but this still isn鈥檛 enough. Through my past years I鈥檝e learned that a desk based job where I need to sit and do logistical work for long hrs isn鈥檛 for me. I learned that I thrive in fast, hands on work. I state this simply to give you an idea of the work environment that is more cooperative for me. If anyone could offer advice please feel free, I greatly appreciate it.

2023.06.01 20:20 RTV_SLO Pod neko objavo sem na拧el slede膷a mnenja Slovenca, ki se je preselil v Kalifornijo. Kaj si mislite?

I moved away in 2008 due to the small-minded mindset of the people and lack of opportunities.
I ended up in Ireland, but the heavy drinking culture and crappy weather quickly turned me off.
I moved to New York 5 years later, which came with its own set of issues (hectic lifestyle, lack of natural environment, etc.). 3 years later I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and I've lived here ever since.
I'm now a US citizen and happily married and generally happy with the lifestyle here in California.
Obviously 15 years is a long time and a lot could (and probably did) change, so I might not be the best person to talk about what Slovenia is like today.
Back then, while Slovenia was technically part of the EU, most of the small to mid-size companies were just focusing on the local market, severely limiting their ability to grow. The country was fairly centralized, with most opportunities being around Ljubljana. The country has a very clear aversion towards foreign investment. Classic examples were IKEA and Uber, which were both driven out of the country (some would argue that this is a good thing, proving my point).
As for the small-mindedness, people still to this day long for the "good old" days of Yugoslavia. This frequently happens even with the younger generation, who never actually lived through those times. Slovenia never really properly parted with those old times and unfortunately some of that is being transferred from their parents to the younger generation.
In the early 2000s we saw the EU as the saving grace, the ultimate goal, the way to fix the broken economy and everything that comes with it. A lot of that actually happened, yet people still bitch, not realizing how much life has improved since the "good old" days. Nobody realizes all the opportunities they have today versus what was possible back then, and a lot of that opportunity gets wasted as a result.
One common trait is envy. In other places, people's success is celebrated. In Slovenia, you will be looked down upon, and they will try to find a way to explain how your success is due to some outside circumstance. Or failing that, how there's someone who's had even greater success.
Another common issue is the desire to pull each other down. Discussing depressing topics is very common. Wishing that the neighbor's car broke down or their house catches on fire equally so. Talking about failures instead of successes, very common.

2023.06.01 16:33 functor7 On the intersection of Pride and Math.

It is the beginning of Pride Month, and this year we're seeing a lot of organizations which have taken advantage of the post-Obergefell sentiments towards the LGBT community by merely throwing up some rainbow pfps distancing themselves in light of rising anti-LGBT sentiment and terrorist threats. These organizations didn't stand up for the LGBT community when it mattered, and they will reproduce this pattern now. Some may not know this, but the math community has - in the past - taken an active stance to stand up for its queer members and taken political action when it has mattered. That is, the intersection of LGBTQ+ history and Math history is not empty and not even measure zero.
The 80s were, to say the least, a very hard time for the LGBTQ+ community due to the AIDS epidemic and the complete lack of response from those in power about it. The medical community was slow to get research rolling and did not initially communicate with the gay community which made accessing proper medical care and information difficult. The Reagan Administration didn't even acknowledge the existence of AIDS for years, let alone invest resources into the development of treatments. The iconic Silence = Death poster is in response to the lack of action and acknowledgement for AIDS. Gay people were demonized and ostracized and the disease was seen as merely the "natural" consequence of their "delinquent" lifestyle. And arriving immediately after the religiously motivated Save Our Children homophobic activist campaign, AIDS was seen as a correction for moral degeneracy (weird how kids are consistently used to justify hate, almost like we could learn from the past...). By the early 90s, people had begun to take it seriously, but there was still a long way to go before people recognized the gay community as a community in need and struggling with a horrific disease. This is why pictures like that of Princess Diana showing compassion and touching someone struggling with AIDS is so iconic and important.
Point being, in the early 90s the LGBTQ+ community was struggling, not viewed with favor by the public, and finding themselves alone without any meaningful institutional support.
In 1992, Colorado voted on and passed an amendment to the state constitution which said that being queer was not a protected status. This meant that things like discrimination against LGBTQ+ people was totally fine and that violence against them would not be considered a hate crime. This was in response to many cities, such as Boulder and Denver passing laws in the 70s and 80s protecting LGBTQ+ people and functioned to strip away these rights. Coincidentally, the 1995 Joint Math Meetings were planned to take place in Denver. This would mean that mathematicians from around the nation (and world) - many of which are queer - would be congregating in a place that was actively unsafe for them. I think that the tragedy of Alan Turing should resonate strongly within the math community of what happens when we don't support those who are marginalized.
In response, two mathematicians - one gay and one just a real good ally - independently wrote and petitioned the heads of the MAA and AMS to move the JMM to a state which could protect vulnerable members of its community. This would not be an insignificant, easy, or cheap act. There would be backlash by those within the community who were less-than-understanding. Contracts and reservations are done years in advance with hotels and conventions spaces which the JMM would have to pay for breaking. And finding a new space and new bookings on a shorter timeframe would not be easy while all this was going on. That is, it would be not an insignificant cost to the AMS and MAA to move the meetings.
But the heads of both organizations met and agreed to move the 1995 JMM to San Francisco - a pointed decision given the LGBTQ+ haven San Francisco had consistently been and its history with Harvey Milk. This move ended up being a part of a larger dis-investment of organizations from Colorado. The state was branded "The Hate State" - a moniker we could probably bring back these days. Eventually appeals took this amendment to the Supreme Court which overruled it. Moreover the AMS and MAA have both made commitments to protecting vulnerable members of the math community as they now always have a "Change of Civil Rights Legislation Clause" in the contracts that they make for the JMM. As of now, the future JMM meetings appear to all take place in safe states.
When people say that math is not political, that identity doesn't matter, that it's all objective and just about proofs, or that we don't need to do work to resist the systemic injustices that infect all groups of people - including the math community - it's just clear that they are ignorant of their own privilege and ignorant of the history of math. Probably most prominently historically, the math community has struggled with antisemitism and has taken actions to both help and harm Jewish members of the community. The members of the AMS and MAA in the 90s knew the importance of taking risks to protect vulnerable members of its community and opening up mathematical spaces to them, and that mathematics is a political field and sometimes politicized statements are needed. And their action was not without internal backlash, the MAA even published dissenting letters which sound like they could have been written today (just replace "political correctness" with "woke").
The appropriately named mathematical LGBTQ+ organization Spectra came out of this action and provides a place for queer mathematicians to find community. They also do what they can to continue the work begun in the 90s. You can read more about this story and the founding of Spectra in this MAA article. The math community itself still has issues that it needs to work through regarding almost all marginalized groups and closing our eyes so that we blind ourselves to them under the illusion of "pure objectivity" is not the move. In general, mathematicians can take pride during Pride Month that - even if it still has major issues and work to do - that the mathematics community has it within them to take risks and act.

John Domingo, the Night Man

"Was it the right thing? I had to go with what felt right--because from where I sit, seeing what I see--It's all free-form improv in the dark鈥!"
John Domingo was working as a professional saxophone player in San Francisco under the stage name Johnny Domino when he was struck by a piece shrapnel from a cable car that had been struck by the Jumpstart, a burst of energy from an alien on the moon meant to create superpowered people known as Ultras. Gifted powers by the Jumpstart, Domingo became the superhero Night Man, a street-level vigilante who can hear evil thoughts.

2023.06.01 14:12 sonofabutch No game today, so let's remember a forgotten Yankee: Jackie Jensen, "The Golden Boy"

Jackie Jensen, "The Golden Boy", was a superstar athlete in the 1940s who seemed destined for greatness as the heir to Joe DiMaggio... only to be supplanted by a different golden boy, the great Mickey Mantle.
Jensen would eventually live up to the hype, but with the Red Sox -- but his career ended prematurely because, as baseball expanded to the west coast, his fear of flying made road games unbearable!
The Yankees between 1947 and 1964 were utterly dominant, winning 15 pennants and 10 World Series. And it wasn't just the major league team that was successful. The Yankees of this era were loaded up and down the system, from Rookie ball to their two Triple-A teams!
With such a loaded major league roster, the Yankees had many talented players stuck either on the end of the bench or in the minors who would eventually find an opportunity with other teams, including Bob Cerv, Vic Power, Gus Triandos, Lew Burdette, Jerry Lumpe, Bob Porterfield, and Bob Keegan, all named All-Stars with other teams after leaving the Yankees. Clint Courtney would be the 1952 A.L. Rookie of the Year runner-up after the Yankees traded him to the Browns, and Bill Virdon was the 1955 N.L. Rookie of the Year with the Cardinals (and then Yankee manager from 1974 to 1975!).
But the most talented player who just couldn't find the playing time in New York was Jack Eugene Jensen, born March 9, 1927, in San Francisco. His parents divorced when he was 5, and he grew up poor, his mother working six days a week, 12 hours a day. Jensen said the family moved 16 times between kindergarten and eighth grade -- "every time the rent came due."
After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Jensen went to the University of California in 1946 on the G.I. Bill. There he became one of the most famous college players in the country, leading Cal to the Rose Bowl. In 1947, he was the starting fullback as well as the team's top defensive back, and in 1948, he rushed for 1,000 yards and was an All-American.
He also was a tremendous two-way baseball player, pitching and hitting for the Golden Bears in 1947 as the won the very first College World Series, beating a Yale team that had George H.W. Bush playing first base. In 1949, he was an All-American in baseball, too.
His blond hair, good looks, and athletic accomplishments earned him the nickname "The Golden Boy."
Halfway through his junior year, Jensen left Berkeley to turn pro. Jensen would later say he couldn't risk playing a career-ending injury playing for free while teams -- baseball and football -- were trying to sign him to big-money contracts.
"There was a money tree growing in my backyard. Why shouldn't I pluck off the dollars when I wanted to?"
Jensen considered a number of offers, including from the Yankees, before signing a three-year, $75,000 contract with the Oakland Oaks of the Pacific Coast League. Jensen said he thought he'd face better competition in the Pacific Coast League, the top minor league of the era, than he would at the bottom of the Yankee farm system. He was right about it being more of a challenge -- he hit an unimpressive .261/.317/.394 in 510 plate appearances with the Oaks.
At the end of the year, the Oaks sold his contract (and that of Billy Martin, another Northern California kid) to the Yankees.
That same year, Jensen married his high school sweetheart, Zoe Ann Olsen, an Olympic diver. (By age 18, she had won 14 national diving championships and a silver medal in the 1948 Olympics.) "Together they looked like a Nordic god and goddess," Sports Illustrated reported. Nicknamed "the sweethearts of sports," they were the Dansby Swanson and Mallory Pugh of their era. More than 1,000 people attended their wedding.
Jensen would start the 1950 season not in the minors but in the Bronx. He joined the Yankees in a time of flux. They though they'd won the 1949 World Series, the Yankees knew they had to make some changes, with 35-year-old Joe DiMaggio nearing the end of his career. And their heir apparent was not Mickey Mantle -- at the time an 18-year-old shortstop playing in the Class C league, the equivalent of A-ball today -- but the 23-year-old Jensen.
But Jensen disappointed, hitting just .171/.247/.300 in 70 at-bats, and only starting in 13 games. Watching from the bench most of the season, Jensen would later lament the lost year of development, saying he'd have been better off playing every day in the Pacific Coast League.
The Yankees won the pennant for a second straight year, and in the World Series he once again was left on the bench. His only action was as a pinch runner in Game 3 as the Yankees swept the Phillies. That "Moonlight Graham" appearance would be his only taste of the post-season in an 11-year career.
The following year would be DiMaggio's last, and Mantle's first. Jensen began the year as the Yankees' starting left fielder and proved he belonged, hitting .296/.371/.509 through the end of July... and then, shockingly, was demoted to Triple-A and replaced with previously forgotten Yankee Bob Cerv.
I can see why they called up Cerv -- the University of Nebraska stand-out was tearing up Triple-A, leading the American Association in batting average (.349), home runs (26), triples (21), RBIs (101), and total bases (261) -- but why demote Jensen, who had a 140 OPS+ in the majors? Maybe the Yankees felt the brash 23-year-old needed to be taken down a peg. In any event, Cerv hit just .214/.333/.250 in August and was sent back to Triple-A, but Jensen also was left down there. He hit .263/.344/.469 and was recalled after the Triple-A season ended, only getting into three games (he went 3-for-9).
Mantle, too, had started the season with the Yankees, and after hitting .260/.341/.423 through the middle of July, was sent down to Triple-A. But he hit .361/.445/.651 in 166 at-bats, and unlike Jensen was back in the bigs by August 24. He would play pretty much every game the rest of the season, hitting .284/.370/.495 in 95 at-bats.
The torch had clearly been passed -- Jensen was no longer the heir apparent to DiMaggio. In the World Series that year, Mantle was the starting right fielder, and Jensen wasn't even on the post-season roster.
Jensen was so disappointed with how the Yankees had treated him in 1951 that he talked to the San Francisco 49ers about switching to pro football, but ultimately decided to stick with baseball.
Never shy about what he said to reporters, Jensen told The Sporting News on October 24, 1951:
"I felt so badly about the treatment that I received from the Yankees that, although I was in New York at the end of the season, I didn't feel like sticking around to even watch the club play in any of the World's Series games."
"I do not feel the Yankees were justified in sending me to the minor leagues. When I was shipped to Kansas City, I was doing as good a job as any Yankee outfielder and better than some of them. I was hitting .296, which was ten points better than Hank Bauer and 30 points better than Joe DiMaggio, Gene Woodling and Mickey Mantle. Yet Casey Stengel didn't give me the chance I felt I deserved."
Despite blasting his manager in the press, Jensen was still the property of the Yankees. That off-season, teams were circling, hoping to pry away the talented but disgruntled outfielder. There were newspaper reports of offers from the St. Louis Browns, the Detroit Tigers, the Philadelphia Athletics, the Washington Senators, the Cleveland Indians, and the Boston Red Sox -- with one rumor being Ted Williams to the Bronx in exchange for Jensen and several other players. (A Red Sox scout called the rumored deal "a lot of hogwash.")
Sportswriters spent the off-season speculating whether DiMaggio would retire, and if he did, whether Jensen or Mantle would take over as the center fielder, as there were still concerns that Mantle, who had hurt his knee in the 1951 World Series, wouldn't be fully recovered by the start of the season.
On Opening Day, April 16, 1952, it was Jackie Jensen in center and Mickey Mantle in right. Jensen went 0-for-5 with a GIDP; Mantle, 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base! Seven games into the season, Jensen was 2-for-17 (.118) and found himself on the bench. He'd never play for the Yankees again. On May 3, the Golden Boy was traded to the Washington Senators along with Spec Shea, Jerry Snyder, and Archie Wilson in exchange for Irv Noren and Tom Upton.
In two years with the Senators, Jensen hit an impressive .276/.359/.407 (112 OPS+), but the team was terrible, and Jensen wasn't happy. Still just 26 years old, he later said he had almost quit after the 1953 season... particularly after a harrowing flight to Japan for a series of exhibition games with a squad of All-Stars that included Yankees Yogi Berra, Eddie Lopat, and Billy Martin. That experience gave Jensen a lifelong fear of flying, a phobia that became so intense eventually he could only fly with the help of sleeping pills... and a hypnotist!
He might have quit if not for the trade on December 9, 1953, that sent him to the Boston Red Sox for pitcher Mickey McDermott and outfielder Tom Umphlett. He was homesick, he hated flying, and he now had two little kids at home. Red Sox general manager Joe Cronin convinced Jensen to come to the Red Sox, telling him that Fenway Park was tailor made for his swing. Cronin was right: Jensen was a career .279/.369/.460 hitter, but .298/.400/.514 at Fenway.
It was in Boston that Jensen finally lived up to the hype, becoming a two-time All-Star and winning the A.L. MVP Award in 1958 and a Gold Glove in 1959. During his seven seasons in Boston, he hit .282/.374/.478 in 4,519 plate appearances. In his MVP season, Jensen hit .286/.396/.535 (148 OPS+) with 31 doubles, 35 home runs, and a league-leading 122 RBIs. During his peak with the Red Sox, 1954 to 1959, Jensen's average season was .285/.378/.490 (127 OPS+) with 28 doubles, 26 home runs, 111 RBIs, 14 stolen bases, and 3.6 bWAR. During those six seasons, no one in the American League -- not Mickey Mantle, not Ted Williams, not Al Kaline -- had more runs batted in than Jackie Jensen.
Of course, Mantle was the far better player -- even in Jensen's MVP season, Mantle had more runs, hits, home runs, walks, and a 188 OPS+ -- but Jensen's 127 OPS+ between 1954 and 1959 would have been an upgrade over the aging Hank Bauer's 110 OPS+ in right or the left field merry-go-round of Norm Siebern (113 OPS+), Irv Noren (107 OPS+), Enos Slaughter (103 OPS+), and previously forgotten Yankee Hector Lopez (101 OPS+). Casey Stengel would later say the Jensen trade was the worst one the Yankees had made while he was manager.
Despite his success, Jensen was sometimes booed by the Boston fans, just as they sometimes booed Ted Williams. There even was an article in Sport magazine, "What Do They Want From Jackie Jensen?", taking Red Sox fans to task for their unreasonably high demands from the Golden Boy. In 1956, in a game at Fenway Park against the Yankees, the hometown fans were razzing Jensen so much that teammates had to restrain him from going into the stands after a fan. Later that same game, Williams misplayed a wind-blown fly ball from Mantle, and the fans booed lustily. The very next play, Williams made a leaping catch at the scoreboard to rob Yogi Berra of a double. But Williams, still furious, spit into the crowd. He was later fined $5,000.
And Jackie was unhappy to be away from home. He and Zoe Ann had bought a house near Lake Tahoe, where they could both ski and golf year-round, as well as hit the casinos. They also had a home in Oakland, and a restaurant there, and each year Jensen hosted a pro-am golf tournament. But the marriage was struggling. Zoe Ann, once nationally known for her Olympic exploits, was frustrated to be a stay-at-home mom in the shadow of her famous husband, and Jackie became angry if she engaged in her favorite outdoor hobbies, suspecting there were men around.
Jensen's fear of flying also had become even more intense. Sometimes he was so drugged up that he had to be carried on and off the plane, fueling rumors that he was a drunk. Other times he took trains or even drove while his teammates flew.
Once again Jensen was talking about retirement, and in Spring Training 1957, the Red Sox allowed him to train with the San Francisco Seals, Boston's Triple-A team, rather than having to go to Florida. But he was still miserable. That year, he told Sports Illustrated:
鈥淚n baseball you get to the point where you don鈥檛 think you have a family. It just looks like I鈥檓 not built for this life like some ballplayers. You are always away from home and you鈥檙e lonesome, and as soon as I can, I intend to get out.鈥
The 32-year-old Jensen announced his retirement after the 1959 season, and he spent 1960 home with Zoe Ann and their children and running his restaurant. But he returned in 1961. After hitting just .130 in April, Jensen took a train from Detroit home to Reno, determined to quit once again. After a week away, he rejoined the team and had six hits in his next 10 at-bats. By the end of the season he was at .263/.350/.392, and he quit again. This time for good.
After leaving baseball, Jensen invested in real estate and a golf course, but lost most of his money. He then got a job working for a Lake Tahoe casino, was a national spokesman for Camel cigarettes, Wonder Bread, and Gillette, and even tried selling cars. Ironically, Jackie found himself on the road almost as much as he had been as a ballplayer. In 1963, he and Zoe Ann divorced, remarried, and then divorced again.
In 1967, Jensen became a TV sportscaster, married his producer Katharine Cortesi, and eventually teamed up with Keith Jackson calling college football games for ABC, and was a college baseball coach, first at the University of Nevada-Reno and then at the University of California. He managed the Red Sox team in the New York Penn League in 1970. In 1977, Jackie and Katharine moved to Virginia and started a Christmas tree farm while he coached baseball at a military academy. About five years later, on July 14, 1982, he died of a heart attack at age 55.
You Don't Know Jack(ie):
In 1958, Jensen told Sports Illustrated that the biggest thrill of his career wasn't being an All-American or an All-Star, it wasn't winning an MVP or a World Series. "The biggest is having played in the same outfield with both DiMaggio and Williams."
