Marjorie’s son, William Dale “Billy” Goodman, played Textile League baseball in Concord before signing with the Atlanta Crackers of the Southern Association in 1944 at just eighteen years old. He went on to be an All-Star player primarily with the Boston Red Sox and later the Chicago White Sox. One of his claims to fame is that he was one of the featured players in a Norman Rockwell painting titled “The Rookie” for a Saturday Evening Post cover.
