Mr Messerly is another teammate that former major league pitcher Ray Peters helped me get. They played together with the Eugene Emeralds in 1971. Jerry never made the major leagues but he played for 10 years in the Philadelphia Phillies organization.and played the last 6 years in AAA ball in the PCL.
Baseball is in the Messerly genes as Jerry's father, Russell, played in the NY Yankees organization from 1939-1946, during World War Two and his son, Michael, played in the Oakland A's organization from 1988 to 1991
Mr Horlen's signatures were acquired through a private signing held by Bob McCartha, a diehard White Sox fan.
Thanks Bob, they came out great.
