Colby alum donates World Series memorabilia highlighting baseball’s social, economic history

Sandy Koufax, one of the best baseball pitchers of his time, could be found at the height of his fame sitting quietly in a back booth at Dick’s Diner in Ellsworth at 6 a.m. each morning.

Koufax moved to Winkumpaugh Farm in East Holden in 1971 to shun autograph-seekers and baseball’s spotlight. The following year, at age 36, he became the youngest player ever elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

The celebrated six-time All Star who pitched 12 seasons for the Brooklyn/LA Dodgers, is, almost ironically, part of an upcoming exhibit of World Series memorabilia at Waterville’s Colby College. Donated by alum Kurt Cerulli, the 600-plus item collection of baseballs, tickets and programs dates back to 1941. It highlights much of baseball’s history, along with the the social and economic upheaval that accompanied the game in the 1960s and 1970s.
