    --Wow--saw him play an EXhibition game at Pelican stadium in NO

    that was the year after they played the Indians in the WS and Willie Mays caught the Vic Wertz (SP) over the head grab at the Polo grounds---Well I think so..... and my idol George Strickland played for the Indians!!!

    Alvin Dark was the Starting Shortstop in all those All-Star games.

    He also finished 3rd and 5th in MVP voting and was awarded the very first Lou Gehrig Memorial Award, given to the player who best exemplified Gehrig's character and integrity both on and off the field.

    After WWII he claimed Louisiana as 'his' school. It was years later that the LSU machine pulled him back in.

    Coach Robichaux was the only UL administration person to officially recognize Alvin Dark's contributions to UL lore.

    BJ Ryan was an All-Star "one year" He did that one year thing twice, back to back even.

    Doesn't that eastern school have a bigger claim on Mr. Dark?

    About half the claim UL has.

    Nah, that would be like Oklahoma having claim over Troy Aikman.

    "Dark attended LSU in 1942 and was a football standout there as well as a baseball player. During World War II, he transferred through the V-12 program to the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette (then Southwestern Louisiana Institute) in Lafayette, Louisiana, where he again showed his baseball skills, batting .461 in 1944. His football skills were evident there as well as he quarterbacked SLI to an undefeated season in 1943 and a New Year's Day victory in the Oil Bowl. This led to his getting drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1945 NFL Draft. After serving in Asia during the war, however, he came home and chose baseball."

    I'm seeing him for football in 43 and baseball 44. I'm thinking same academic year. Got his BA at SLI. One year at the eastern school doesn't equal a perfect season, bowl victory, and degree. I stand corrected.
