Today's Card ...   John Beradino  --- 1951


                                                                        September 29-30, 2014   

Lights, camera and action!

A light-hitting infielder who enjoyed an 11-
year big league career, Johnny Berardino
found more success in front of the camera
lens as he holds the distinction of being the
only big leaguer to appear in an Alfred
Hitchcock movie.

Berardino played a New York City police
officer who gave Cary Grant a ticket for
drunk driving in the movie,
North by
Northwest.


After a leg injury ended his career,
Berardino turned his full attention to acting,
where
he appeared in several movies while
gaining his greatest fame in the role of
 Dr.
Steve Hardy in the soa
p opera, General
Hospital.


Berardino would be a member of the 1948
World Champion Cleveland Indians while
being presented with a “star” on the
Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1993. On the
diamond, the versatile infielder would hit
 .
239 with 36 homers in 912 games split

between the Browns, Pirates and Indians.

That’s a wrap!
