NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2020 ■ 3 ■ Correction Unfortunately, there was an error on the last cover of The Wolfpacker (corrected version be- low). The player we identified as longtime MLB pitcher Mike Caldwell was not him. We sincerely apologize to NC State's greatest MLB product for the unacceptable mistake. We also fielded questions about if the photo of David Thompson was indeed him. We were able to confirm that while Thompson only wore Nos. 33 and 44 in the pros for official games, this photo of him in No. 15 was from an exhibition game played early in his ABA career.
