Pendleton - On a night perfectly set for baseball, the Pendleton Heights Field of Dreams became Bill Stoudt Field, honoring retired Arabian baseball Coach Bill Stoudt in an emotional ceremony between games of a Pendleton/Rushville doubleheader.
Athletic Director John Broughton introduced long-time friend and colleague Stoudt to an audience that included fans, nearly 50 former players, Superintendent Joe Buck, school board member Chris Boots, current Arabian players, former classmates and Stoudt’s family — wife Martha, daughters Molly and Susan, and several other family members who made the trek to Pendleton for the ceremony.
