George Kirschenbauer

Recuited for Baseball, George lettered in both Football and Baseball– sending a pitch in the spring of 1962 right over Cullum Hall roof.

“Kirschenbauer, Kirschenbauer, I saw George Kirschenbauer hit a home run over the roof of Cullum Hall” Comment by son of Mr. Link (PE Dept.) Spring of 2006, when George’s name was mentioned. The excitement in his voice was as if was May of 1962. What we did made a difference.
