My memory of Hopalong Cassidy was our Big Ten Championship Baseball game at Michigan State. The winner was invited to the College World Series in Omaha.
Over 5,000 in attendance, including the President of the University. On the Ohio State Team was Cassidy and a future NBA and a NFL player.
On the MSU team were 2 future NFL players, two future MLB players, one Jesuit Priest and one Area Code Games "founder".
