Dedicated to Cal Emery (1937-2010), whose 14-year professional playing career took him to Bakersfield, Des Moines, Asheville, Indianapolis, Chattanooga, Rochester, Arkansas, Hawaii, Seattle, San Diego, Buffalo, Eugene, Reading, and Osaka, Japan — and, for 19 proud at-bats, to the Philadelphia Phillies. Mr. Emery also served as the batting coach for the Chicago White Sox for a year, in addition to logging time as a minor league manager. At Penn State, where he won the Most Outstanding Player Award at the 1957 College World Series, he is remembered as one of the all-time greats. Here’s to you, Cal Emery.
