1962 Wichita Dreamliners baseball bat

1962 Wichita Dreamliners baseball bat
Date: 1962
These photographs show the commemorative baseball bat received by Gil Carter as a member of the Wichita Rapid Transit Dreamliners semi-pro baseball team in 1962. That year, the Dreamliners won state and national semi-pro tournaments sponsored by the National Baseball Congress. Both tournaments were held in Wichita. In the state tournament, the Dreamliners defeated Wichita Instant Glass by a 2-1 score in the twelfth inning of the final game. In the 33-team national tournament, the Dreamliners advanced through the loser's bracket to win the title by defeating the Fairbanks Goldpanners, 7-6, in the championship game. Gil Carter, the Dreamliners' left fielder, had a .484 batting average and six home runs during the national tournament, which earned him a spot on the all-tournament team. Carter played for the Dreamliners again in 1963, when the team successfully defended its state and national semi-pro titles (see Kansas Memory number 310424). Digital images of the commemorative bat were created through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.
