Was thinking about this question today, while having lunch up at the Shane’s Rib Shack and the first baseball coach I had was Jerry Carrick and our team was the Guilford College Indians…
Team members that I remember and we could probably go out and play one of those little League games tonight and we used to always play on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at the Guilford School Field and our team had:
Doug Martin at 3rd
Stan Stewart at SS and 3rd
Chuck Ralls at 2nd and at SS
Clay Hopcroft at 2nd
Eddie Yost in LF
Gary Cox in CF
David McDonald in RF
Mark Shaw at catcher
and Andy at 1st base….The pitchers were rotated between Doug Martin, Stan Stewart and Chuck Ralls…
There’s your team right there and it was a pretty good team back in the day going up against the Dodgers(Pete Eller coach), Tigers(Ed Royal/Ralph Stafford coaches), Yankees(Charlie King coach) and the Red Sox(Stumpy Brown coach)….
It was a five-team and you were lucky if you could finish second, because those Red Sox always had tons of players coming out of the same household and those kids were good….
Good days and a lot of good Summer baseball out of that part of town, back in that day…The only travel we did is when we came to town/Greensboro and played a team on occasion…..
