It’s not very often that a Major League manager is celebrated as much as his players but such was the case for Florid Marlins skipper Jack McKeon whose larger-than-life personality became a defining element of the 2003 World Series Champion Florida Marlin’s. McKeon was 72-years-old when he was hired to replace Jeff Torborg for a Marlins team that struggled to a 16-22 start. For his efforts, which resulted in a World Series victory over the New York Yankees, McKeon was named National League Manager of the Year. McKeon is the oldest manager to win the World Series. This Original Hollywood Jack Corbett/Schutt Sports Base, with alternating National League Championship Series and MLB logos on its four sides, was used on October 12, 2003 during Game Five of a very dramatic 2003 National League Championship Series between the Marlins and Chicago Cubs. Two-days before the infamous “Bartman Incident” at Wrigley Field, the Marlins had their backs to the wall losing three of the first four games of the series, but behind the shutout pitching performance of Josh Beckett and home runs by Jeff Conine, Mike Lowell and Ivan Rodriguez the Marlins began to turn the tide with a 4-0 victory at Miami’s Pro Player Stadium. The base is covered with all sorts of dirt and cleat marks, has placement directions written on its underside. Base is signed by McKeon on top in bold black Sharpie and comes with a PSA/DNA certification (#U69535) for the signature and MLB Authentication (#MT003012217).
