marine baseball team

The battalion's baseball team went 28-0 and became champs of the 2nd Marine Division league, which they had been invited to join although the battalion was not part of the division. Their star player, Donald "Rip" Koenig, was so good that the Fleet Marine Force-Pacific got him transferred so he could play for their team on Oahu. (Twig is second from right, first row.)
