TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO ERECT SIGNS OUTSIDE THE CAMDEN CITY LIMITS ON UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 521 SOUTH AND NORTH, AND UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 1 EAST AND WEST, THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "CAMDEN-BIRTHPLACE OF BASEBALL HALL-OF-FAMER LARRY DOBY".
Amend Title To Conform
Whereas, on July 5, 1947, Larry Doby debuted with the Cleveland Indians, an event which also served as the integration of Major League Baseball's American League; and
Whereas, Mr. Doby is a "native son" of South Carolina, having been born in Camden on December 13, 1924, and having resided in Camden until his teen years; and
Whereas, he was also among the first African-Americans to appear in a Major League Baseball All-Star Game and appeared on six consecutive All-Star teams; and
Whereas, Larry Doby hit more than two hundred fifty home runs and drove in almost one thousand runs in a productive thirteen-year career; and
Whereas, the Cleveland Indians have retired Mr. Doby's uniform number 14, and he is a member of Major League Baseball's Hall of Fame; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper to honor this native of South Carolina by erecting appropriate signs outside the Camden city limits that proclaim it as the birthplace of a legendary baseball hero. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation erect signs outside the Camden city limits on United States Highway 521 South and North, and United States Highway 1 East and West, that contain the words:
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
