    Did Mike Vaughn from Tennessee ever play for Howards from 1977 – 1980

  2. I was Don “Slab” Chilton’s nephew, followed him with Dad to hundreds of games probably. I started playing at age 11 in Church softball, still play that and Seniors in Cary, NC. At a young age I played in a tournament against Howard’s and also the Tri-City Triplets of Leaksville, NC. The only two I remember were Don Arndt and Danny Carver, I had met them many years before traveling to see my Uncle Don play. I know my uncle and Danny went on to play with Aetna later, Don had played with many teams,..Short Sugars and Gem Dandy of Reidsville, NC, and Huffman Oil of Burlington.

    I have pitched to a few more great hitters, Clyde Guy and Todd Martin in my latter years, before leaving Reidsville. I was hoping to find more information on the Aetna Team, would appreciate anything I could find.

    So happy to see this article. My father, Walter “Pepsi” Church played proudly for the Howard’s Furniture team in the 70’s. He was one helluva outfielder. I believe he may have pitched at one time or another as well. Do you have any info or pics of him in the line-up? Sure would make me and him very happy to see anything you might have. : ) Thanks again for this article.
