I will think of Shirley everytime we open gates at Clipper Magazine Stadium.  She attended every game and greeted me with such excitement, every night, reminding me how lucky I am to be there for each and every game. Fans, staff and players a like will miss Shirley’s love of the game and the team. With my good memories of Shirley, in mind, I express my sorrow, for the famlies loss of your loveing matriarch. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, as I wish you healing and peace, during this season.  Maureen Wheeler – Lancaster Barnstormers.
