1964 Erv Lind Softball World Champions

With the skillful coaching of Lois Williams, the backing of Erv Lind, and the players’ determination and positive chemistry, the 1964 Erv Lind Florists marched with authority to the Amateur Softball Association World Championship in Orlando, Florida. The florists won five straight, including four shutouts pitched by Jackie Rice: 4-0 over Topeka, 1-0 over Orange, Ca., 3-0 over Orlando, and 1-0 over Stratford in the title game. Seven of the nine Florist starters were named to either the first or second World All-Star Teams, including the entire infield. The Florists finished 60-16-1 (.789) for the season.
