George Cole Field, March 1982. Our starting second baseman was…
I wonder where they got that from?
Very good possibility, Matt.
Just noticed the time of game: 2:37. Don’t get many of those any more with just about everything on TV.
With 137 in attendance
That’s March at GCF for you. Sometimes there were more people in the press box than in the stands. Especially a midweek game. This one happened to be a Sunday, after a weekend SWC series at Baylor which always ended on Saturday unless weather intervened.
More weirdness from that week in 1982: That Friday, an SWC game with Rice ended in an 11-inning tie, 4-4; GCF had no lights and if it got too dark to play, etc. So they played it over again: two on Saturday and one on Sunday. That game with Rice was the last home tie Arkansas baseball has played (they had another tie earlier in the season). In 1987 they played a tie at Memphis on the first weekend of the season; presumably Tiger High didn’t have lights either, or maybe it rained.
I attended many a game at GCF in college
But by 1982 I was at UAMS in Little Rock
I also watched many Hog baseball games from my car parked in the gravel lot just beyond left field, there was no HPER then
Not many in press box at George Cole. Kinda small.
Exactly. But still more than some of the crowds in those days.
