No matter how you spell you, many of you will remember West Point’s baseball team from the late 50s. The Weiners were forerunners of the Bryan Brothers Packers, a semi-pro team that all the girls in the Golden Triangle had crushes on in the 60s.
We couldn’t wait for the new recruits to arrive each summer – many lived in a big old house on Commerce Street if my memory serves me (which it is doing less and less these day).
In fact some of us married a couple of the Packers, nee Weiners and I was in love with at least one named Al Unser – or maybe it was his brother. My best effort to ID the guys above from left Roger Hill. Bucky Kellogg, unknown, Boyd Dingus, Skippy Taylor and unknown. Next row from left Bob Marshall, (Is that Billy Hamp Reed) Billy Damron, Albert Wray and Benny Bentley. Back Coach (?), William Campbell, Travis Langford, Dennis FLorreich, Paul Hester, (Chuck Friend?) and Coach Cantrell. If anyone can set me straight, please do.
