The restored B-29 Superfortress named Doc is back home in Wichita, Kansas, where it was made during World War II. The aircraft appears in 12 to 15 air shows every year and offers periodic rides. When not at an air show, visitors can tour the plane at the B-29 Doc Hangar, Education & Visitors Center in Wichita.
The stadium was quiet on this late October morning, deserted except for a lone maintenance man. Vintage billboard signs that usually line the outfield fence had been taken down to be touched up. There were no roaring crowds or ballplayers in knickered uniforms. But standing in the outfield, looking into the dugout, took me back to the most famous scene of the 1992 movie A League of Their Own, which was filmed here at League Stadium in Huntingburg, Indiana.
