Ever optimistic, many of us went to the stadium anyway, hoping for a rain delay, not a postponement. As I sat on the concourse, watching the field, I saw Syracuse Chief icon Tex Simone leave the visitors dugout and slowly cross the field to the home dugout. I admired his hands-on approach in such nasty weather. He'll be 83 in a couple of months. I guess his passion for baseball keeps him young.
Moments later, the game was postponed until the following day.
