Greensboro, NC -- Fifty years after they represented their high school in the state championship, members of the Bessemer High School baseball team reunited at Hagan Stone Park.
The year was 1963. Bessemer High met Chapel Hill High School in the State 3-A Championship. The Whippets won the series in a best of three matchup.
It was the school's first championship since 1925.
That same year, 1963, was also the school's final year of operation, and many of its students went to Page High School.
Saturday, 11 of the team's 15 players came together to relive some of those memories.
