Mud Hens honor Sylvania police

The Mud Hens’ opening ceremony Sunday, June 23, 2013, at Fifth Third Field was dedicated to the Sylvania Police Department in celebration of dispatcher Gary Siegel’s 35-year career. The retiring Mr. Siegel, 62, was surprised when he was walked onto the pitcher’s mound to throw the ceremonial first pitch. “I didn’t really suspect it. It was a pleasant surprise,” he said.
