Fred Baker

I finally found a couple of pictures of Fred Baker in Leon Anhaiser's scrapbook which he let me scan recently.  Mr. Baker (as we knew him) was a real supporter of youth baseball in Sugar Land.  As a member of the Lions Club, he assumed responsibility for maintaining the Little League fields & administering team affiliations with the national organizaion.  I remember seeing him mow the field at the corner of Wood & Highway-90A many times.  He may have been president, but he didn't mind getting his hands dirty with routine work.

Many younger people will know the main field in the 7th Street park is named after him.  The plaque in this pictures is affixed to a wall of the press box, I think.
