I saw the 1988 USA Olympic baseball team

I saw the 1988 USA Olympic baseball team play against the Taiwan national team in Hagerstown. Maryland’s minor league baseball stadium on July 16, 1988. The main thing I remember was that it was 102 degrees. I don’t remember anything about the game. The Taiwan team huddled before the game like a football huddle.

The team won the gold medal and full of future major league players such as Jim Abbott, Ben McDonald., Tino Martinez, Andy Benes, Charles Nagy and Ed Sprague.

The photo is of a collage I assembled with pins, patches, a poster with facsimile autographs and Gateway envelope with real autographs.

It also has my ticket, a flag we were given and a roster sheet I collected autographs on. I remember Ed Sprague spent a lot of time signing autographs.
