Description

He was on the field when Alan Ameche burst into the end zone at Yankee Stadium to end "The Greatest Game Ever Played." He kicked the game-winning field goal to lift the 1925 Pottsville Maroons to a 9-7 upset of the "Four Horsemen" and the University of Notre Dame. He collided at home plate with Babe Ruth in a 1931 game, causing Ruth to miss two weeks. He was also on the field as Willie Mays ran down Vic Wertz' drive in the 1954 Fall Classic. Sounds impossible, right? Well, it is indeed true that Charlie Berry (d.1972) was present and actively participating at the aforementioned events in his capacities as a player or arbiter. This OAL Harridge baseball is autographed by that omnipresent figure! The creamy orb (grade "7") showcases Berry's penning, which projects ("7-8") potency on the sweet spot.
