Jim Wiley was excited for the late Bobby Stratton to be inducted into the American Legion Baseball Hall of Fame Thursday before his team took the field in the state tournament.
And he knew that "some other guy" was being inducted as well.
He also noticed that some of his old players were in attendance, and that both his sons were there with their families.
"They just told me they came down to watch the games," he said. "I didn't really think much of it. It's the state tournament, and a lot of people just come down to watch."
