Herbert Earl "Bert" Hall (October 15, 1889 – July 11, 1948) was a Major League Baseball pitcher. He pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies in 1911, appearing in seven games with an 0-1 record and a 4.00 ERA. Is thought to have thrown the first "Forkball" that is unique to the one we know today. Placing the ball between the pointer and middle finger and throwing with a normal release, however once released, acted without rotation, much like a knuckler. It is believed it looked a lot like current Major Leaguer Robert Coello's forkball.
