Don Mincher was baseball in Huntsville.

So when the Huntsville Stars had their 28th home opener after his passing, they had to pay tribute.

His son Mark who also coaches the Huntsville High baseball team, threw out one of the first pitches.  Several other members of Don's family also came to the ballpark to honor the man who helped bring minor league baseball to the Rocket City.
