Operation Ticktock

Operation Ticktock is what the Atlanta players nicknamed the race to play host to the Southern Association All-Star game in 1954. Players on the host team would receive a wristwatch valued at $75. Shown here is the watch awarded to Crackers infielder William Porter. (COURTESY OF BOB PORTER)
