1. Ron and Linda Tyler Marker
Inscription.  
Former WSU Baseball pitcher (1965-66), and successful businessman who together with his wife, Linda, made Phase II a reality by funding the project in the Fall of 1987. With the naming of "Tyler Field" upon completion and the establishment of a multi-million dollar life insurance policy dedicated to the program, the Tylers gave Shocker Baseball long term stability it had never before known.

Thank you from Shocker Baseball.
 
Erected 2000 by Wichita State University.
