Looking Back: May 15, 2011

It rained on May 15th, the day after Michael Aubrey made history with his four home runs.
Tex Simone
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.
