Caltech teams of the 1960s

The Swinging Sixties brought a scripted "Caltech".  It showed up in 1964.

And then there were the Frosh Squads.  Disclosure time.  The 1964 Freshman Team photo was spread out over two pages.  I did some editing to make it look decent.

Caltech teams of the 1950s

Same song, another verse. Now we're into the Fabulous Fifties. Nothing of great note in the Caltech uniforms.  The managers are becoming much more casual.

On to the players.  It might appear that in 1956 we have a shot of away uniforms.










The Freshman Teams always at the end.  A bit of mix and match in the middle of the decade, but rather vanilla.

Caltech teams of the 1940s

You know the drill by now. Here's pictures of the Caltech Varsity baseball teams, this time from the 1940s. Being a technical school, I'm assuming that Caltech turned their attention to the war effort in the mid-40s. I didn't find teams for 1944 or 1945.  The jersey design didn't change much this decade.  A bit of piping here or there and a few older beaver jerseys show up in 1943.

Now on to some players.








And the Frosh Squads.

For the rest of the decade the Frosh Squads seem to have gone away.
