1972 sponsor t-shirts in apparent Kodachrome color

As the Little League seasons get going this year, we look back to earlier times when the kids look the same but the t-shirt lettering isn’t as fancy.

Above are the 1972 8-9 year-old Webb City Farm Club All Stars, with their manager, Leon Harding.

(FRONT) Derek Johnson, Mike Harding, Neil Tappana, Leslie Howard, Randy Carney.

(BACK) Ronnie King, Mike Phillips, Jeff Harrison and Frank Lundien.

Thanks to Don Howard for providing those names. Maybe you can help us identify the boys in the photo below of the 1980 United Masonry Babe Ruth team.
