Image was taken from a three part series on New Bern in the Swiss magazine, Die Berner Woche. The series ran weekly from October 28 to November 11, 1939. This image is from the November 4, 1939 issue.

The German caption can be roughly translated as:

The catcher from New Bern. He is also an excellent baseball player, you can see that in him. The colors of the club are, of course, black and red, which he wears on his uniform, the name New Bern.
