Longtime Benton coach recalls time with Saints

May 20, 2011

Anyone who has ever played the “telephone game” knows how easily the simplest of information can get distorted as it travels from one person to the next in the span of just 10 minutes.

So when I heard the old wooden seats at Ray Winder Field were being given away, I did the unthinkable: set my alarm.
And I wasn’t alone. Last Saturday hundreds of us descended upon the old home of the Arkansas Travelers, eager for an opportunity to take home a piece of team history.
