One northern Wisconsin man has a room full of baseball memorabilia, thanks to a friendship with late Hall of Famer Burleigh Grimes.
His walls are lined with autographed baseballs, bats, photos and books from players he knows or has met over the years.
Not bad for a pitcher who never made it beyond high school and club ball. Charles Clark lived in the same small town that produced baseball’s most famous spitballer. His friendship with the late ace brought Clark to Cooperstown starting in 1964 where he began to accumulate a lifetime of memories on display at his home.
One of his other friends was a long-time US Senator from that same little burg.
