Jerry Huber of Bailey met baseball great Mickey Mantle in 1987.
Huber, who was national sales manager for Gillette Dairy, gave the famous New York Yankees center fielder a souvenir Yankees malt cup, the kind used at ballparks.
Mantle, a Hall of Famer and the best switch-hitter in baseball history, responded by giving Huber a signed baseball.
A sports fan and collector of memorabilia, Huber also met Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller, who played much of his career for the Cleveland Indians and threw three no-hitters.
Feller, too, gave Huber a signed ball.
