 How is that for a memory after 54 years? At our 45th reunion  Eddie Newton and I were discussing  our propensity to be able to memorize unusual trivia.  I was a part of the 1958 Big Wheel Little League team above.  I had never played 9 inch baseball before because I had recently moved from a tiny town in northern California.  I also missed getting to play another year of little league by a few weeks.  I did play four years of Pony League and Colt League baseball at Colina Del Sol. I was cut from Crawford's team in 1962 and was heartbroken.  Now -- 50 years later -- it doesn't seem so bad, considering that during my Junior Year the team had future major league stars Dave Duncan, Eddie Herrmann and Bob Boone, as well as the Andrew Jackson Little League's best player, Jim Bell -- Maurice Barringer ’64
