19 June 2007: John Henry Moss throws out the first pitch at the South
Atlantic League All-Star game in Rome, Ga., Tuesday, June 19, 2007.
Longtime South Atlantic League president John Henry Moss died today at age 90.
Moss was legendary, having started in professional baseball in 1947. He served as president of the South Atlantic League from its inception in 1959 through 2007.
I only photographed him once, in his final year as president when he threw out the first pitch in the Sally League All-Star Game in Rome.
