Strange but true!

Ken Berry, "the Bandit" and Gold Glove outfielder for the Sox in the 60's is now a published children's author.

His 3rd book, "Barney the Blue Moose" is about to come out. His first two books were called, "Arnie the Awesome Apple" and "Clyde the Clumsy Camel..."

He also has a photo of him making a leaping catch at Comiskey Park on the inside of the back cover of each book.

I e-mailed him asking how this all came about. It's different, that's for sure.

Here is his web site if anybody wants more information:

Ever since my childhood, have wondered if this Ken Berry (our Ken Berry) is the same Ken Berry who was a television actor, the sheriff on Mayberry, RFD.
(Mayberry RFD the sequel to Andy Griffith show after he quit..)
Anyway, maybe you know?

No, Hes not.

After thinking about this, you may have thought they were the same because during the opening credits of the show Mayberry RFD, Ken Berry the actor is shown playing catch with his son.
