50th anniversary of Evansville Aces undefeated team

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the undefeated 1964 - 65 season for the Evansville Aces.

Fans were invited to a panel discussion with the starting five of the team at the Old National Events Plaza on Saturday.

Players signed autographs and answered questions.

Larry Humes, a starting player on the team, says it's exciting to be back with the fans and his teammates.

More than 12,000 fans packed Roberts Stadium on a regular basis for the team that won the national championship in back to back years.

"One thing about us is that we played as a team, it was a happy family, we were never jealous of anybody and we respected everybody and the finer thing in that is after we graduated, everybody was successful so it was a teaching thing," said Larry Humes, player 1964-65 Evansville Aces.
