Vern Hoscheit, California Angels Baseball Club, Coach, Autographed Photograph.


Vern Hoscheit’s career in professional baseball spanned six decades. Signed as a catcher by the New York Yankees in 1941, he had little hope of making the major-league roster with Bill Dickey and later Yogi Berra ensconced behind the plate. The Yankees front office took notice of Hoscheit’s leadership potential and made him a player-manager for its McAlester (Oklahoma) club at the age of 26. Although Hoscheit never was called up to the big leagues, he ended his minor-league career with a solid .283 batting average. Then he made his mark in the majors as the bullpen coach on four World Series winners. One of baseball’s truly unsung heroes, he taught the fundamentals of the game to hundreds of players in five different major-league organizations, as well as scores of youngsters in American Legion ball.
