At the annual Hall of Fame banquet held earlier this year, former A’s player Ozzie Smith presented a bronze bust of the late Merl Eberly to his family, the A’s and the community. It has been on display in the window of the Chamber of Commerce till a permanent place could be found at the ballpark.
On Friday, June 29 it will be placed on the west side of the concession stand/clubhouse south of the Memorial Rock.
The base will be put in earlier in the week & the bust placed that evening. There will be a ceremony prior to the game at which time Smith and others will speak briefly.
