In the past few weeks, I've devoted a good bit of space here to the old (and now gone) Madison Heights Methodist Church.
My pal C.L. Mullins sent me this interesting photograph, showing the church's baseball team. He points out, "Madison Heights shared a sports program with St. John's Methodist. So, who got the uniforms?"
Good question. I wouldn't mind having an old Madison Heights baseball jersey, though I doubt if I would be able to fit into any of these. Because of my tremendous muscles, you understand.
We can easily date this photo to 1963 or 1964, since in the background the Mid-South Coliseum is under construction, and it opened in 1964.
Does anybody recognize any of the fellows in the photo?
