Ask Cam

Softball just brings me back

March 26, 2012

Hey Cammie,

With the upcoming softball game Wednesday afternoon on my mind, I was wondering what softball was like way back in the day. Do you have any memories you’d like to share?

Cam's answer

Oh boy, do I! In fact, I was just reminiscing over this photo my good buddy Hap Hazard sent me. This photo was taken in 1917 of a game out at the lawn area behind Spruce Hall. Granted, we now have a more established softball field out by Moby Arena, but it’s pretty neat to see what it used to be like.

Beyond that, you’re going to have to ask Peanuts (who is probably barking it up in the Bahamas) what it was like back in the day, because my hooves didn’t trot onto CSU’s Oval until 1946... but that’s a whole other earful for another day.

But anyway, I hope I have the chance to see you Wednesday at 4 p.m. rooting on our Rams!

Always spirited,

Cam the Ram
