Lanny Ropke, a retired captain for American Airlines who lives in Ahwatukee, dons a Vintage 9 uniform at Tempe Diablo Stadium on Sunday, moments before a group of businessmen from around the United States played against The Legends, a team consisting of former Major Leaguers using rules of the game and equipment from 1887. Ropke, 66, who has played in the Men�s Senior Baseball League for 25 years, was selected as Vintage 9�s Most Valuable Player after going 3-for-3 with two runs batted in. [Mike Sakal/Special to AFN]
