Classic Moments in EpSig History, Vol. 3

Not only were the Old Bro's definitely dangerous on the intramural football field, but the softball teams that wore the purple, green, and gold were equally studly as well.  Bill Schlichter (EpSig 647) sent in the following pic of the 1975 Ronrico Rum Cup winning team, anchored at shortstop by Jack Power (EpSig 667).


Jack's account of the how the championship game ended:

"Setting the record straight! The game ended 8-7. We beat the Sigma Nu's to win the 16 team tournament by Ronrico Rum and Playboy. The last out was recorded on the rarest of plays. The last hitter for the "Signus" hit a 2 hopper deep in the hole at short. I don't think I could have gotten it. It did hit the runner on second who was appropriately running with the pitch and got struck by the ball between 2nd and third in full stride ending the game in the bottom of the 7th and last inning. If you were scoring that day, you would have given Gary Williams the final "put-out". We were undefeated and untied that year. Fuck You Sigma Nu's. Boy were they pissed."

Jack also sent in the following photo of Gary Williams playing 3rd base (that's Jack in the background at shortstop) taken during the Ronrico Cup tournament:


As always, if anyone has any old photos they would like to share on the Old Bro Network, send them in and I'll get them published for all to enjoy.
