Honors in the Outfield

18 Nov

Recently, Professor Webster and his class (“Baseball in American History, Culture, and Film”) took a “field trip” to Washington Nationals stadium.  Faculty and students often venture out to enjoy what the city has to offer, and Prof. Webster sent in a pretty cool photo of this most recent event.

The scene is the television broadcast booth at the stadium.  Standing behind the group and wearing the white shirts are Bob Carpenter [left] (the play-by-play announcer for the Nationals) and Rob Dibble (“color analyst” and one of the pitching heroes of the 1990 World Series Champion Cinncinati Reds team).  Sitting on the stools in front and holding the microphones are Caroline Smith [left] and Debra Manche [right].  Also from the class is Abigail Hildebrand [to the right of Ms. Manche] and Prof Webster [far right].  On the far left is a guest of one of the students (a recent graduate from Georgetown), and to his right is Mr. Gerald Phillips from Gelman Library’s media resources department.  (By the way, the Nationals, not surprisingly, lost the game that day to the Atlanta Braves.)
