Aces athletics

Was hoping to start a thread that discusses the program, the schedule and some of the more curious parts of UE sports. Baseball intrigues me. I know a guy -- WIllie Glen -- who pitched for the Aces back in the day. He's the only pitcher to have his number retired and hung on the outfield wall at the ballpark in Gary, where he was easily the best pitcher in RailCats history. Aces baseball, which was next to a walking joke when I was there in the 60s. Now it's put some guys in pro ball. Would like to hear some things about that from the fans, if possible.

As an aside on Willie Glen, I was at the ballpark the night they retired his number and he was signing posters. I got one and had him sign it. I told him, Willie, I have two autographs in my possession. One of them is yours and the other is Johnny Bench.
