World Series Champ Helps Honor Father at Barton

The B's were all around Barton College Saturday afternoon, of course for the Barton Bulldogs, but also for the Boston Red Sox.

That's because the Barton College Athletic Complex dedicated their baseball field to Doctor Bill Nixon, an alumnus, and also the father to World Series Champ, Boston Red Sox Trot Nixon. Doctor Nixon went to Barton College when it was still Atlantic Christian College, but his support both physically and financially has never wavered, something he encourages all alumni to do.

After the dedication, his son, Trot was on hand to sign autographs for fans. Then the Barton Bulldogs of today, took on some of the bulldogs of the past, as the current team took on some of the alumni to a friendly baseball game.
