Pony League Baseball Coach

Mark was my baseball coach, he was a left handed pitcher. We did not have much of a team or a ball field in Coral. Some how we were able to get a corner of a field, south of town, we as a whole team worked on carving out a diamond to play ball. He married a very nice gal from Trufant named Diane, before he was shipped out. He was not in the war very long before he was killed.

Coach

Mark coached Coral Mi little league. He was a high school kids that took the time to teach us. No uniforms, maybe 3 bats and some telephone poles for a back stop. His young wife came to the field and told us when Mark died. Every year there is a baseball in his honor at the Enid OK Vietnam Wall which is at the airport, east of town. His family remembers his and we do also.
