Baseball Hall of Famer Hosts Tournament

JUNCTION CITY, Ore. — The oldest living Baseball Hall of Fame member Bobby Doerr made an appearance this weekend at a baseball tournament named after him.

The Bobby Doerr Baseball Classic is a two-day tournament in Junction City.

Players not only competed but got a chance to get something signed from the baseball legend too.

Doerr reflected on his baseball career and spoke about how important it is to support the young players.

“It’s great that these people put this together like this and to get the kids out playing like this. These kids will all grow up baseball minded,” said Doerr.

Doerr lives in Junction City and just turned 95 this April.

He played his entire 14-year baseball career for the Boston Red Sox.

He’s revered as one of the best second basemen of his time.
