HOUSTON -- Through generous contributions to Houston Baseball, the Cougars will continue to honor their two College World Series teams of 1953 and 1967 with updated and newly installed pedestals along the concourse at Cougar Field.

After being led by Gene and Loretta Russell and a group of loyal Houston Baseball contributors, the off-season project was completed just in time for the 2013 season. The two granite pedestals each showcase the respective team photo and roster and highlight the teams' trips to Omaha. The pedestals are placed in a fan-friendly location as Cougar fans can enjoy viewing the storied past of Houston Baseball.

"I am very appreciative of the efforts led by Mr. Russell and his family to install the pedestals at Cougar Field," head coach Todd Whitting said. "These pedestals are a remarkable fixture for a vital piece of our great tradition in baseball at Houston and will serve as a permanent display of the great accomplishments of the 1953 and 1967 teams."

1953 WORLD SERIES TEAM
2013 marks the 60th anniversary of Houston's first College World Series team of 1953. Russell ('53) was a senior outfielder on that squad, which was led by head coach Lovette Hill. The team finished with a 15-11 overall record and was named NCAA District 5 and Missouri Valley Conference Champions before meeting Boston College and Stanford in Omaha.

1967 WORLD SERIES TEAM
The 1967 team was also under the direction of Lovette Hill, who finished his 25-season career (1950-74) with an overall record of 343-325-5. He led the 1967 Cougars to a 21-11 overall record and a 3-2 finish with a Runner-Up title in Omaha and a final ranking of No. 2 in the nation, the highest ever by a Cougar team.
