Former big league baseball player Ken Oberkfell was in Greenville Thursday for the Chamber of Commerce’s annual baseball luncheon.
Born in Highland and raised in Maryville, IL, Oberkfell had a solid career playing for St. Louis, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Houston, San Francisco and the California Angels from 1977 to 1992.
He talked with WGEL and told us that Cardinal fans are second to none and St. Louis is the best place to play.

Oberkfell is living again in Maryville.
This was the fifth year for the Chamber’s baseball luncheon.
You can hear more with Oberkfell on WGEL’s Sports Shop this Saturday.
