John Berry

JOHN BERRY is a semi-retired accountant and long time baseball fan and history buff. A history graduate from the University of Colorado, with an emphasis in American and Far Eastern Studies, he learned many years ago from a college professor about a Russian who was a great professional baseball player in Japan. Thinking it might be an intriguing story, he decided to research Starffin’s story as a retirement project.
