Hershie Freeman

 Memorable Pitcher in Local Baseball.


•  "Myhand, Johnson and Williams helped revive mill baseball following the war (WWII) until Dallas and Lincoln closed, and Bryant kept a team going at old Merrimack, by then known as Huntsville Manufacturing. The Huntsville Manufacturing team of the late 1940's was called the MLs, and they were a stout bunch. The MLs once beat the University of Alabama 1-0 in a 16-inning game at Huntsville Park. Hershie Freeman was the winning pitcher, going all the way. The MLs finally folded in 1955." - Pruett
