And, once again, the Stanczaks proved themselves to be the best. The Deikes, competing in a night game and under lights for the first time, took an early 3–0 lead, but the Stanczaks quickly responded with seven runs as fielding errors plagued the nervous Texans. The brothers from Waukegan went on to win 11–5.

Thus it is their team picture that today is displayed in the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum in Cooperstown, New York.

In time, age and adult responsibilities brought an end to both legendary teams. Father Mike went on to pastor a church in Milwaukee, while his brother Joseph held public office in Chicago for 39 years. Edward and Joseph became co-owners of the Chicago Yellow Cab Company.

Although Frederick Deike lived out his life in Hye, taking over operation of his father’s general store, and Levi stayed for a record-setting 64-year tenure as postmaster, most members of the team eventually moved on to greater opportunities in larger Texas cities.

Today, the Stanczaks and Deikes are all gone, leaving behind only the faint memory of that long-ago glorious night in Wichita when the sport of baseball reigned as king of all pastimes.
