TIGER FEVER

Don’t you think that is great to see the Detroit Tigers keep winning.  Our own Jason Grilli, son of former Chiefs pitcher Steve Grilli has been on a great ride this season.  Steve, has been to all the games and reports that former Chiefs catcher and current Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont sends his regards to Central New York, while Tigers manager Jim Leyland, also a Chiefs catcher in spring training 1965 and 66 sends his regards to his former Trainer and Chiefs current COO, Vice President Tex Simone.  Lamont, Leyland and Simone became close friends during the Tigers years (1963-66) and have remained friends ever since.  Steve also reports that former Chiefs Willie Horton, Mickey Stanley, Jim Northrup, Mickey Lolich, Gates Brown are all still members of the Tigers family and still remember their days in Syracuse.  Wouldn’t it have been interesting if the Tigers wanted to return to Syracuse!!!!!
