Art Berg

Art Berg graduated from Stadium High in 1921 and then attended Washington State University.

He was a standout baseball player in Tacoma's City League. In 1940, the slugging first baseman led the league with a .491 average and also had the most putouts.

Following World War II, the City League made a return, and Berg stepped into the role of player-manager of the 6th Avenue club. The post-war era saw a return of sponsorships by communities and neighborhoods as they had been decades earlier, rather than by businesses.

After playing baseball, he worked as a lineman for Foss Launch & Tug. Art's brother, Wedell A. Berg, also played baseball and passed away in 1996. Art passed away in 1980 and is survived by his two nephews, Dell and Stephen.
