This image appears on the cover of the April, 1949 edition of the Alumni magazine. The caption reads, "It's spring again. And all over the country men, women, and children are welcoming the opening of one of the greatest of all American pastimes- baseball. Emerging from the Field house as skies break sunny overhead, the Crimson Diamond men work out on Jordan Field under the tutelage of I.U.'s new coach Ernie Andres, '39 (pictured here in jacket backing up the pitcher), former University baseball great and All-American basketball star who returned to the Alma Mater this year after several seasons of playing third baseman in professional leagues."
