Remembering Carlton Willey

by Wayne Smith

It was 62 years ago that Cherryfield native Carlton Willey pitched for the Milwaukee Braves against the New York Yankees in the World Series. The faces and places were different in this year’s series in which the Braves again played the Yankees. But for Willey, the ‘58 season will play on and on. I was able to interview Willey in the 1990s, and again in 2007. He died in 2009. Baseball was his life and this is his story.
