The success of the 2009 Fairmont High School baseball team brings back memories of FHS’s run during the 1967 NCHSAA 2A Baseball playoffs. Pictured above is that team prior to a game.

Members are (kneeling, l/r) Ben Brady, Kenneth Barnes, Mike Davis, Braxton Freeman, Tommy Purvis, Bob Capps; (standing, l/r) Mike Walters (scorekeeper), Wesley Freeman, Joe Frye, Johnny Bare, Charles Adams, Bill Brady, Jay Capps, Roger Ivey, Terry Grier, Larry Walters, Coach LeRoy Vaughn, Gene Ivey.

This team lost in the state finals to North Davidson after winning the first game of that series. Joe Frye went on to play college baseball at NC State and Larry Walters played at East Carolina, then played several years professionally.
