Third on Reagan’s right

Third on Reagan’s right in this photo is Otis R Bowen (Wikipedia), secretary of Health & Human Services and former governor of Indiana. 89-year-old Doc Bowen attended the 2nd Annual Bremen Old-Timers Softball game yesterday to throw out the first pitch, and your intrepid reporter is there. Doc pitched men’s softball in Bremen in the 1940s. While governor and secretary, he was known to write out prescriptions for cold and flu remedies for colleagues and reporters.

  1. Sounds like my Doc – who has been known to write a prescription or two during a Mardi Gras event!

    I’m glad to know that summer afternoons and hometown baseball thrive in the Heartland!
