Klein's journey ends in Cooperstown
A star pitcher and hitter for Southport High School, Klein failed to attract the attention of any big league ball clubs and so, like many of his classmates, upon graduation he started work at a local steel mill. It was physically taxing, but later on Klein would credit the experience with the strength that would help him carve out a Hall of Fame career.
As the keepers of the Game’s history, the Hall of Fame helps you relive your memories and celebrate baseball history.
