Rick Wise and Keith Lampard

In today’s Oregonian, Brian Meehan has a nice reminiscence about Rick Wise. Brian says that

Wise was was the best player on the Rose City Little League team that made the Little League World Series in 1958.

I went to Madison High School from 1959 to 1962, and I recall the years of Rick Wise and that State Championship in 1963. There was another team member that made headlines in those years, Keith Lampard. Born Christopher Keith Lampard in Warrington, England, December 20, 1945.

My sister Cheryl had a crush on him. Keith and Rick were a mighty duo, one pitching and the other playing outfield and both could slug the ball a mile. My classmates and I spent a lot of hours watching those young men along with players like Jerry Simonson and Jim Shepard. What a season and both Rick and Keith made it to the Bigs. Keith to the Houston Astros in 1969 and 1970.
