#379 Ken Berry 

Not a star but handy to have around...exceptional fielder, great arm, saved a lot of runs....two seasons sans a fielding error with over 220 chances...Played parts of nine seasons with the White Sox most them as a regular....starting in 1962 saw the good times and the bad....his last season in Chicago, 1970, was his all around best at the plate despite being one of the worst in history of the club.....took his glove to California for three campaigns  hit .269 for the Halos and led the team in hitting twice...Finished career as a reserve in Milwaukee and Cleveland...He may not be Mayberry RFD actor but he is now a published children’s book author...hobbies while playing were hunting, fishing, and rock and roll records* quote taken verbatim from 1966 Sporting News Register.
