Last Week, DELVETS Post 1 Manager Mike Buono lost his mother, Kathleen Buono.
Most of us probably don't remember her, but she used to cheer her son Mike when he played Legion Baseball for Delvets all those years ago. Her funeral is scheduled for Wednesday.
Then, over the weekend came the word of the sudden death of long time Jos. Stahl Post 30 manager, Bob Anderson.
Bob was the SAL representative on the Delaware American Legion Baseball committee, and had been the manager of the Stahl Post 30 since the late 1990's. He was an outstanding baseball manager, who took his team to the playoffs every year, and whose teams usually played in the final game of the championship most years, winning 8 during his tenure as manager.
Funeral services are expected to be Thursday at the Spicer-Mulligan funeral home.
It was to be a rematch of the close game played Tuesday between Stahl Post 30 and DE Post 1....
But Mother Nature had other plans in the form of a heavy Thunderstorm that rocked Northern Delaware about mid afternoon.
Unplayable Conditions forced another postponement with the game to be made up later this month.
