Ben is the only person I've known who shared my birth date...we first played baseball together at Everett A Ray Jr High then thru Varsity Baseball for the Mustangs.  Ben recalled in detail just a few months ago the way Larry Livingston (also Class of 63) would always pitch the 3rd strike to the outside corner and how Ben 'would always...would always' (in Ben's words)..'get a hit' in what was likely the Jr Robins League then coached by Bob Wetzel a few years before he was hired by CMHS and started one of Orange County's most storied coaching careers.

Another Forrest Gump moment...Ben and I (unknowingly) joined the Air Force at the same time and in the later months of 1966 crossed each other's path at Kessler AFB in Biloxi Mississippi only to see him one more time at our 20th Year Reunion.
