1. O.L. "Rusty" & Joan Eck Marker
Inscription.
Longtime successful Wichita area businessman and his wife, Joan, whose drive for excellence may have only been exceeded by their genuine concern for others. Only through their initial commitment in 1983 did Phase I - "Eck Stadium" become reality. Their continued involvement with each Phase in the development of Eck Stadium have made the "Dream" come true.
Thank you from Shocker Baseball.

Dedicated this day, April 8, 2000.
