The Delaware State American Legion Baseball Tournament is down to the final games, and the top 3 seeds from regular season play are still in the chase.
#1 Seed Stahl Post 30 faces the #2 Seed DELVETS in an elimination game Wednesday afternoon. The winner of the game will face #3 seed Delaware Post 1 for the State Championship at Noon on Thursday.
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.
