The BCCAA Inc. would like to extend our congratulations to Mr. John Schuerholz BCC ’58 for his election into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame!!
“I always had aspirations of being a successful general manager, to build winning teams, and we were able to do that and do it for a while consistently,” Schuerholz said. “But this honor almost — it puts me in a position where I seldom am, and that is to be without words to describe what this means to me. … [Being told of the selection], those words will ring in my ears and in my brain for the rest of my life. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am.”
