Cinematic Birthday Greetings: Ken Berry

Ron KaplanContributor IMay 11, 2011

Not the Ken Berry of F Troop fame, but Ken Berry the outfielder for the White Sox, Angels, Brewers and Indians, who turns 70 today.

The defensive standout (two Gold Gloves) served as a technical adviser for the movie version of Eight Men Out and even had a speaking part. He’s the loudmouth in the stands who heckles Shoeless Joe Jackson, played by D.B. Sweeney, about his literary accomplishments.

Berry appears at just about the one-minute mark. (Warning: naughty word right at the end.)
