RE: Any oldtimers remember the MVP Games? Dave Wottle Versus Jim Hershberger
Dave was/is a great all around athlete; that why he won the MVP the 3rd year I think. The year you are asking about Dave would have been the defending champion, and Jim was a great athlete also, and very competitive. To answer your question; politics, and rules interpretation by local volunteers, and friends. Both men were in top form that year, and as we all know things happen, and life isn't always fair. As a side story the first year of the MVP I know Dave was injured, but still competed in all events (as was the rules). I tell the story that I once beat Dave Wottle in a 2000 meter race. The facts that he was injured is not important to the story; just the results.
