I done to even know where they be gone. Still there Are a lot of us still around a a surprising few seem to have strayed from their native realms More than a Quarter Century after that magical summer. When i run into Bruce Fowler now a conservative family Man contractor and school director i Call him it just seems natural. He a just As Likely to address me As a a Bunny or Quot Rabbit a a somebody standing within earshot of such an Exchange might wonder Why two grown men would be addressing each other As denizens of the Forest. More than Likely they would probably wonder How in the world a Guy built like me could Ever be called Bunny. It goes Back to the summer of skill unlimited by 4 Wes Skillings to t i960.

Litwin was our Home run King and just about everyone else except me was a threat to put one out of the Park Casterline was our defensive standout anchoring an infield that turned Over the double play in what seemed to be one uninterrupted motion my Job aside from catching All those fastballs and breaking pitches was to be the team cheerleader i talked to the Pilch ers i talked to the batters a a it a time for the old dark Ball Johnny done to blink or you la miss it Bat ter a sometimes the batters talked Back to me when they did the intent was Seldom social we kept playing and we kept win ning and when we finally lost to a team from Plains the playoff schedule had forced us into a Posi tion of not being Able to Start either of our two Best pitchers to this Day they say the secret to going All the Way to Williamsport is a Strong third starting Pitcher. Even when it ended we knew we had been part of something special for most of us it w As the first taste maybe the Only taste of what a group of people can accomplish when they play As a unit instead of As individuals it is still the most valuable lesson sports has to teach unfortunately you usually have to win to really learn the lesson see a skill a Page 12
