Trivia 307

 

I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.

 

Here’s one for you history buffs and baseball fans.  Ever hear of Moe Berg?  He was a third-string player.  Why would he go with a top notch team to play in Japan in 1934?  Well he was a spy working with the CIA.  He spoke 15 languages and was parachuted into Yugoslavia to work with the partisans.  During his trip to Japan he filmed locations from a hospital roof and was instrumental in the Doolittle Raid by looking at the film he took.  He was also helpful for several raids on Germany. All in all he was awarded the Medal of Freedom (highest award for a civilian in wartime). 

 

This all goes to prove treat everyone with respect because you never know who you are dealing with or what they are capable of.  Look him up to confirm what I have written I did.  BTW if you have a baseball card with him featured I would like to talk to you about buying it.  He is the only baseball played with that Medal and it hangs in the Baseball Hall of Fame.  His baseball card is the only one that is hanging in the CIA headquarters in Washington DC. 

 

Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.

Isn't it amazing that it is often the names we don't recognize that can make the larger contributions we never hear of.  Great story!

Hi James! The trivia of the day is quite interesting. Moe Berg sounds like an amazing man. How many lifetimes did he live to accomplish all this? Going to Google to read more.
