1973 JCP Softball Team

UPDATED 3/12 with identification of those in the photo.

With Major League Baseball's spring training underway and the 2016 baseball season right around the corner, we thought it would be fun to take a look at the 1973 JCP softball team!

This photo is from the July 1973 issue of "Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Magazine" and was taken by legendary wrestling photographer Gene Gordon.

This was an amazing gathering of top wrestling talent, not to mention top talent on the diamond!
