| Bill just contacted me and said he will be sending new pictures
in as he finds them. For now I'm starting with a great picture he sent of the
1962 Little League baseball team called The Zebras he played on. The Zebras was
one of four teams that played that year. Bill notes "I do remember though that
the year before we could only play softball. Moral support and 4 volunteer
couches pressured the community hard for Little League approval, then for
uniforms and equipment. We had to use the main ball field whenever the adult
softball teams weren't using them. A white chalk line was drawn across the
outfield as a home run fence. Anyone that hit a home run got 2 free meals at
the club. All the volunteer coaches and the community really did a great job
putting all this together. Whenever the Little League played, regardless if it
was a day game or night game, it was standing room only."
I'm the 2nd player from the left, back row, Bill Veach.
