ECUSTA'S 1949 BASEBALL TEAM
Beneath a sunny sky with a chilly wind blowing,
in weather more suited for football than baseball,
our Ecusta nine opened its 1949 baseball season
Saturday, April l6th, on the Camp Sapphire
Although our team dropped its opening game
to Berkeley by a score of 8 to 3, the team looks
promising and hopes to make a good showing
for themselves in the future games.
Shown in this photo arrangement are the
men who will represent Ecusta for the 1949
season. These men will be trying hard to make
our Ecusta team a winning team and your sup
port as a loyal fan will help them to work harder
for victory. So every chance you get, give them
your support by attending the games.
New members of this year’s squad are Troy
Drake, Robert Jennings, Fred Miller, George Sex
ton, Bill Byrd and Joe Whitaker. Members of
last year’s squad are Charlie Clayton, David Sams,
Jack Alexander, Footsie Case, Rusty Carland,
Pete Dockens, Roy Head and Fritz Merrell.
