PLAQUE OF WINDEMUTH PUT IN PLACE

The Modesto Bee - - Sports -

The fin­ish­ing touches on Windemuth Field at Enochs High were re­cently com­pleted. The field, named for the long­time Modesto High School and Davis High School coach, was ded­i­cated 10 years ago. For­mer play­ers raised funds for the field and score­board, but one piece of the plan, a bronze plaque of Dick Windemuth on a brick wall near the back­stop, wasn’t com­pleted. Lo­cal sculp­tor Betty Saletta was com­mis­sioned this year and pro­duced the like­ness of Windemuth, known by many as “Mr. Base­ball” and “The Mad Rus­sian.”
