Vintage Baseball - East Valley Tribune: Ahwatukee Foothills

Vintage Baseball

Lanny Ropke, a retired captain for American Airlines who lives in Ahwatukee, dons a Vintage 9 uniform at Tempe Diablo Stadium on Sunday, moments before a group of businessmen from around the United States played against The Legends, a team consisting of former Major Leaguers using rules of the game and equipment from 1887. Ropke, 66, who has played in the Men’s Senior Baseball League for 25 years, was selected as Vintage 9’s Most Valuable Player after going 3-for-3 with two runs batted in. [Mike Sakal/Tribune]
