CHS to honor 1977 NCS Champion baseball team Friday
There will be a mix of old and new at Calistoga’s home baseball game against Rincon Valley Christian on Friday.
Following the game, which is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m., Calistoga High will hold a ceremony to retroactively honor the 1977 North Coast Section Champion Calistoga baseball team.
Members of that team includ Kevin Begley, Rich Gregory, Roger Pond, Mike Andrews, Dave Gray, Steve Pence, Gary Indrego, Jim Wycoff, Bruce Sakai, Joey Guardado, Dave Bailey, Jeff Maxfield, Robin Hagerman Teddy Tamagn, Mick Drewi and Coach John Duby.
A banner has been made to commemorate the section title and will hang in Calistoga’s main gym at the high school. This will be the first of six banners presented to former section championship teams from Calistoga.
This idea to honor the school’s past accomplishments arose after the volleyball team won the NCS section title this past fall. It was the first section title for a girls sport in school history and prompted the athletic department to look into past section winners.
The school plans to honor two football teams this coming fall and two basketball teams in the winter. The volleyball team will be presented with their banner at a school rally later in May.
Hot dogs, chips and other refreshments will be available at the field on Friday.
