    Kagavi: Look back at the 1957 ISU CWS baseball team

    I'd like to welcome Joshua Kagavi to the mix as a new contributor here on CF. From time to time, he'll be offering up historical pieces regarding Iowa State athletics. He'll have the same stuff posted over on his site, Kagavi.com, where you can purchase related merchandise as well. Here is his first feature - a look back at the 1957 Iowa State baseball team that almost won a national championship.

    Re: Kagavi: Look back at the 1957 ISU CWS baseball team

    Nice write-up, it is interesting to learn a little about ISU's baseball history. It's cool that ISU actually has some baseball notoriety. Even though I'm not much of a baseball fan I would be supportive of ISU bringing back baseball someday if it is in a good enough financial situation to do so. I have to admit I'm a bit jealous of fans from other Big 12 teams that have the option of attending baseball games during the spring and summer. Really well written article, thanks for the history lesson.

    Good piece.

    Jerry McNertney is also featured in the Jim Bouton book "Ball Four" which every baseball fan should read at some point.

    Really looking forward to contributions from Joshua. He is one serious researcher and a pretty good writer. I've enjoyed interaction with him a few times.

    Seeing those old pictures reminds me of how much I miss the old style uniforms, with the short pants. Something about the long pants they wear today that just makes it not look like a baseball uniform. They look more like a sweatsuit than a baseball uniform.
