After Henry Iba became athletic director, he also agreed to coach the baseball team. Through his leadership, the sport was revived at Oklahoma A&M College beginning in 1934.
Iba continued to coach baseball very successfully through the 1941 season, developing several outstanding players, including Allie P. Reynolds who later achieved national recognition as a pitcher for the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians. A new baseball stadium on campus was dedicated to Reynolds in 1981.
Games were played on an open diamond in the area between Boone Pickens Stadium and the old gymnasium, which is now part of the Donald W. Reynolds School of Architecture Building.
The photos featured here are from the early 1900s, which represented the first years of baseball on campus.
