Youth Baseball From CCK

Mr. Wang from Taiwan mailed me a link to an old AFNT CCK radio program.

The 8 minute audio clip with end of game roundups for 2 baseball games played at CCK and broadcast on AFNT CCK in 1970. Announcer: Gus Harris

A change of pace; and it's kind of fun to envision games being played at CCK so many years ago.

When I was stationed at Hurlburt Field in the early 1960s, the NCO Barracks was right along the soft ball field, across the street from the NCO Club.  In those days, just about every unit had a soft ball team, and the rivalry was always hot.  Most games were played in the evening.  I used to walk out the front door and grab a grilled hot dog right off the BBQ grill, load it up with onions, pickles, ketchup and mustard, grab a cold Bush and sit on the bleachers to watch a game.  It wasn't long before I headed back to the snack shed to get another hot dog.  Those dogs were the best I have ever tasted.  My days in Florida were sweet.

Here's the AFNT program.  

Sit back and relax as you turn on your "mind's eye" and enjoy the games from the Field 2 Ball Park at CCK.  Did Field 2 serve a good Hot Dog?
