1975 Loyal Baseball Fans
75 0430 02
April 30, 1975
Watching how the big boys do it are three ardent fans of the THS varsity team playing on the old field on the TES campus, (bus shop location). Identifications, please. Leave your comments. Another bit of history, Mr. Bobby Driggers used to speak at every sports banquet and tell about how Mr. Jim Sherrod, who loved baseball, helped to clear up Mr. Jim Fowler's blueberry bushes to make that field. Mr. Eulie Keene, who died recently (2010) told about playing 6-man football and falling on the hard stubble that was cut for them to play. The location later became the parking for the field where the SHS Panthers played (In 2010 in Jean Gillis Park.)
Others that week: Majorettes of all ages, TPS program, first graders field trip around Soperton, band members in a Bank of Soperton ad, PTA honoring top scholars, grades 3-12, and pictures of Herbert Warnock escorting James Windsor to the Willis Warnock (brother) pond in Wheeler County. Mr. Windsor had bought the Wheeler County Eagle from Wallace Adams's family a short time earlier.
