Harry Brecheen

 

 

 

Harry Brecheen was my mother-in-law's, Evelyn (Bassett) Ford favorite player growing up.  She sent him a note asking for a picture and this was his response!

 

 

Eddie Dyer reflects:

"What a man to have around when you really had to win a ballgame. The Cat's go a head, heart and guts."
