From the Basement of Heritage Hall


Digging through the archives, we stumbled across this classic picture of the 1935 USC baseball team practicing the rundown play.

Behind every great photo is a story...

From left to right: 3B Johnny Morrow, SS and captain Rod Dedeaux (who would eventually lead the Trojans to 10 College World Series titles as head coach), utility man Ben Franklin (the baserunner), 2B Ken Peters (who went on to be a Naval Commander, superintendent of the Beverly Hills USD and member of the California Board of Education) and 1B Ernie Holbrook (died in combat in WWII).



Cool piture and story.
Thanks Jordan.
Any old pics of John Wayne?

Great picture. Always wonderful to see Rod...he was a fabulous coach.
