Sparky Anderson's First Professional Baseball Contract

Sparky Anderson's First Professional Baseball Contract

This contract, dated Jan. 30, 1953, was for George L. “Sparky” Anderson to play for the Santa Barbara Dodgers Class C team. It is signed three times "George L. Anderson," it is also signed by Fresco Thompson three times, and by Sparky’s dad. It is in EX condition. Also included is a progress report of sorts, signed by Santa Barbara manager George Scherger, stating Sparky’s strengths – running and good hands - and weaknesses – “needs to be moved [from short stop] to 2nd base. Arm is not good enough for the long throw.” These two documents are in EX condition.
