A key role player on that team was Paul Popovich. He is married to 1964 Aledo High School graduate–the former Susan Hutchins. The two met while she was teaching in the Chicagoland area. Popovich’s big league career spanned 11 seasons–playing for the Cubs, Dodgers and Pirates. In 1969, Popovich hit .312 for the Cubs playing in 60 games after being acquired in June of that year from the Dodgers.
