Who Was H.B. Kernodle
January 27, 2011North Dallas High School Booster Club
Through H.B's tenure, many aspiring high school and college baseball players passed the gates of this historic field with the dreams of becoming big league ballplayers.
With H.B.'s love of the game and its players, he tended to the finest field conditions for teams wanting to play in this classic baseball park.
Common street shoes were not allowed to step on the field of play. Baseball cleats only!
A traditionalist, H.B. had his own personal rules. With a smile and a pat on the back, he greeted bus loads of teams coming to his park. A player could not enter the park wearing headphones, have his ball cap turned in any direction but square on his head or shirt not tucked in.
His monotone comment to such a player was: You're a baseball player Son, act like one. Don't embarrass your team. Many players returned to the bus to store the radio for safe keeping. H.B's tradition holds true to this day by the N.D. Boosters working the gate at this annual baseball classic. An added feature since H.B.'s departure is "The Show of Colors" during the National Anthem at opening night ceremonies by the schools J.R.O.T.C. Color Guard on Thursday March 3, 2010. If you love baseball, tradition or just want a family night out in a classic ballpark with popcorn and a hot dog in hand. Plan on coming to the 6th annual H.B. Kernodle Baseball classic at Reverchon Park, March 3rd, 4th and 5th.
