Another 1916 Coca-Cola advertisement featuring another new member of the New York Yankees, coach Herman “Germany,” “The Prince” Schaefer.
This year coach for the New York Americans–the greatest comedian in baseball today. Of all smiles his favorite smile in Coca-Cola.
The 40-year-old Schaefer was purchased by the Yankees from the Newark Pepper of the Federal League when the Feds folded after the 1915 season. Used almost entirely as a coach, he appeared in only one game and went 0 for 1 at the plate. He was released by the Yankees in September.
