1960s' American League outfielder Mike Hershberger passed away on July 1st, 2012 at age 72, in his hometown of Massillon, Ohio.
Mike was the White Sox' right fielder from 1962-64, then held down the same job for the Kansas City Athletics from 1965-67. Although he remained with the A's following their move to Oakland (pictured above wearing a crisp, new Oakland uniform in the 1969 Topps set), it was in a reduced role.
Traded to the Brewers before the 1970 season, he played one season there before getting his release. He returned to the ChiSox for his final season in 1971.
And for the White Sox fans...
