I went through another 3 rolls of microfilm today from the Wichita Historical Society. I uncovered several good finds in the 1983 Wichita Eagle-Beacon set. There were several professional baseball players, including some HOFers: Willie Aikens, Steve Carlton (HOF 1994), Larry Gura, George Hendrick, Dennis Leonard, Hal McRae, Al Newman, Dan Quisenberry, Nolan Ryan (HOF 1999), Mike Stenhouse, and Rennie Stennett. There was one professional basketball player: Moses Malone (HOF 2001). There was one professional hockey player: Wayne Gretzky (HOF 1999).

Here is the complete list from today:

Al Newman - Minor League Baseball Player
Frank Schulte - College Baseball Player
Hal McRae - Professional Baseball Player
