Statis Pro Baseball in the National Archives

I found this gem in The National Archives Catalog. Anybody know these guys?

Senior Airman (SRA) Brad Dirks, left, and Sergeant (SGT) Bill Lamoureux, both from Detachment 7, 1361st Audiovisual Squadron, play a baseball board game in the US Central Command Air Force barracks.  They are participating in Exercise SHADOW HAWK '87, the  Jordan/US segment of Exercise BRIGHT STAR '87.  SHADOW HAWK is a combined effort of the US Central Command and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

I would love to hear more stories of tabletop-sports board games in the service. Did you play Statis Pro, or APBA, or Strat when you were in the service? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. Nope – back then I was only Army Centric. But email me…

  2. Played APBA Baseball and Football while stationed in Turkey at Incerlik Air Base (TUSLOG DET182) in 1967 and 1968.

  3. Started playing Statis Pro in 1979, still have the season (78), played a few more years of Statis Pro till 1981, then dropped out a couple of years and play Strat-o-Matic and APBA. Mostly Strat now. Started in 79 when I was in the Air Force at Ft Meade, took it with me to Osan Korea, and finally to Keesler in Biloxi.
