There was a question about this baseball jacket on the "You Know You're From Aberdeen" You know you're from Aberdeen, SD if... page. Here are some answers:

This jacket is from the Aberdeen Pred's Amateur team that was active in Aberdeen from 1943 - 1960. In 1957 they played in the AABC (American Amateur Baseball Congress) eight state double-elimination tourney held at Mobridge--winner to go to the national tourney in Battle Creek, MI. Pred's won 5 out of their 6 games to win the regional and went to nationals. They did not do well there, losing all 3 of their games. Scores: Knoxville, TN 3 - 14; Wyandotte, MI 2 - 6; and Birmingham, AL 1 - 3.
Birmingham went on to become National Champs that year.

Team roster: Terry Waba, C; Russ Hiltunen, P; Carl Hertz, P; Mo Mack, Ut; Choc Zerr, Ut; Jim Nygaard, P; Ev Dahme, P; Don Cassels, P; Bob Keeler, 2b: Ken McCormick, SS; Dan LaFond, 1b; Harlan Dubs, 3b; Charles Lutgen, LF; Lyle Dahme, CF; Don DeWalt, RF; Al Grage, C; Barry Pence, P; Lee Grohnke, P; Junior Locke, P; Dale Pudlitzke, P; Dick Tinker, OF; Mel Tuscher, and Blackie Engelhart, Manager.
