Q & A with Doug Fowler: Service above self

Doug Fowler was raised in Oceanside — a great place to grow up, especially for a kid that liked sports.

The Chargers had just moved to San Diego in the early ’60s and the Padres started playing “baseball” a few years later. He loved going to ball games when a visiting team such as the Cincinnati Reds came to town. Players such as Johnny Bench and Pete Rose would always make time to sign autographs, and there would hardly be any local fans there.

As a small group of drivers stopped to watch the scene, on Sitting Bull Road near Waynoka Road, I asked if anyone had called 911.
