Rogue's fan Greg sent me this great scan of a newspaper clipping from July 20, 1978.  The Rogues played a local restaurant in a charity softball game.  Greg had his picture taken getting an autograph from Alan Birchenall.  He recently found the clip at his aunt's house.  I was at this game too and it was a lot of fun.  The Rogues players were joking with the fans and tried to play softball like cricket.  Birchenall was a huge fan favorite.  He was the joker of the team.  What is "The Birch" hiding behind that magazine?  His cigarette!  Thanks Greg, I really appreciate you sharing this Rogues' memory!
