    Buddy Hassett Single Signed Baseballs Lot of 12. An even dozen clean Official American League (Brown) baseballs featuring the sweet spot signature of Buddy Hassett. First baseman Buddy Hassett, the Bronx Thrush, played seven years in the majors and never struck out more than twenty times in a season. As a rookie with the Brooklyn Dodgers, he set a record by only striking out 17 times in 156 games, and he led the league for most games played. He was also known for his defensive skills. Away from the diamond, Hassett was a singer who regularly performed a vaudeville routine. He also served on an aircraft carrier for the U.S. Navy in World War II. He died of cancer at age 85 in 1997.
