On June 6, 1937, Woody English of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs takes advantage of one of baseball’s most difficult promotional opportunities. English wins a free suit of clothes when he hits the famous “Abe Stark” clothing advertisement sign, located just below the scoreboard at Ebbets Field. The company had promised to give any player a free suit if his home run hit the sign on the fly. (Courtesy of the Baseball Hall of Fame.)
Woody managed the Grand Rapids Chicks in 1953.
